Wide Ultra3 Compatibility

By rmdelrosario ·
Is is possible to connect a Wide Ultra3 SCSI hard disk to a Wide Ultra2 SCSI Controller?

Will it work just fine?


Will there be any performance degredation?

Yes and Yes.
SCSI standards are cross compatable, but they will run at the specs of the slowest components. So your Ultra3 drive will only transfer data at the WideUltra2 standard.

you might need an adapter if your cable connector is different from the drive connector. but these are easy enough to find.
