The Ratoc card is listed as Mac-compatible, although I've never used one.

I have used Adaptec's PCcard-based SCSI cards before, but not on Macs. They don't list Mac compatibility on their site, but this is Adaptec, so who knows?

The only thing I'd say about a device of this kind is that performance is going to be limited to the speed of the PC card bus. Check out specs prior to purchasing.

Just as an FYI, the Adaptec card isn't fully supported in OS X. I have one, and they do have an OS X driver, but it's only a BETA driver that hasn't been updated in pretty close to a year (maybe longer). The driver has some major bugs, like not being able to remove it and reinsert it without kernel panics and full system crashes.

Just my $.02. Of course, maybe those things won't bug ya too much.
