Simple Design – Place a file on an SD card and go. Nothing to configure or setup.
Power Options – In most cases it is powered directly from the SCSI bus or via USB.
Performance – Up to 1.2MB/sec Read, 1.2MB/sec write.
Compatibility – Most Macintosh machines that use SCSI – Check out the Wiki page at https://github.com/erichelgeson/BlueSCSI/wiki/Supported-Systems for a full list
BlueSCSI comes in two variants:
- Fully Assembled. Assembled & tested. Just plug it in, write a file to a SD card and boot your Vintage Mac!
- The kit comes with a preflashed & tested BluePill along with all the parts you need to get it up and running – Just add an SD card and a Vintage Macintosh! You must be comfortable with through hole soldering along with one component that is surface mount. This is a good kit to test your skills in this area! If you are not comfortable soldering please choose a fully assembled kit.
Usually ships within a business day or two. Ships to US.
Please note regarding ST chips: Due to the global chip shortage, most of the Bluepill’s that are sent out will be clones and not genuine ST chips. They may be marked as ST but fake, they may be marked as CHK or HDM or something else. They are still 100% compatible and supported by BlueSCSI, are all tested and benchmarked on a vintage Macintosh before being sent out(both assembled units, and the Bluepills included with the kit), and all carry the same 14 day DOA return window.
