My HP340 (currently sitting in one corner) has external
HDD boxes, connected by HP-IB. Inside each box, there
is a (apparently) SCSI drive, and a large PCB that
seems to convert between HP-IB and SCSI. (is this
common?) The PCB is larger than the video card inside
the main computer.

Would anyone care to comment on this setup, in terms of
access speed (and any other aspects)?
