So I have Several Retro Computers many of which use IDE or SCSI for their storage devices. Well the Issue is they just don’t make those old storage devices anymore. So what do you do? If you have IDE you can just get an IDE to SD card reader and you are good to go, but until recently there hasn’t been a cheap solution for SCSI.
The BlueSCSI can be built for as little as 10-15 USD if you make it yourself. If you buy A blueSCSI they are around 35-60 USD. Of course you can always buy them from a retailer on https://scsi.blue/. I have both bought and built my own BlueSCSI devices. The github for the blueSCSI is here.
These are just the latest 4 BlueSCSI devices I have build. Here is a video that showcases how to build your own BlueSCSI device. Now you may want to know where to get the stuff to get your own from scratch Here is a Video on that .
So why did I build and source my own? Well because I have about 40 – 50 computers that use SCSI and I can’t afford to buy so many of the BlueSCSI Devices at 35-60 USD each. Well was it worth it to buy them? Yes for me it was A great deal I am also good with soldering. If you aren’t I recommend buy a premade one as they are a great price. their speed could be a bit faster. Their ease of use is beyond simple as you can use the Hard drive files in an emulator to transfer data.
These are currently targeted towards Macintosh computers but some people have gotten them to work with other computers as well.
