IDE to SCSI converters

Slashdot ran the story of the SCSI-to-IDE converter card. It implements Ultra160 SCSI on one side, and IDE or ATAPI on the other side. I first saw something like this on the Yamaha CRW-F1ZS SCSI CD burner, which comes in the box as an ATAPI drive, but you need to manually attach a SCSI converter. It's nice to see it as a general product, especially since big IDE drives are so much cheaper than big SCSI drives.
