Will Retrospect support the internal scsi version of Onstream Echo 
SC30 SCSI? It's $200 cheaper than the dedicated mac external scsi 
version (doesn't come bundled with Retro for Mac). For those of us 
who already own a copy of Retrospect, and have an extra bay in our 
backup servers, the Onstream looks like it could be a good upgrade 
path from current drives.

Does anyone have any particular thoughts about the Onstream compared 
to, say, DDS-3 or 4 drives--or other drives in the same price range?
