I have a 72GB (15k RPM) SCSI (SAS) HDD from a server machine that I got from a friend which I want to use in my desktop, mainly as the OS drive, but my desktop has only SATA ports. Some online searching for SCSI-to-SATA adapters (and vice-versa) shows there are some such adapters, but I would like to know if they are actually compatible.
Also, will there be any significant performance degradation? And is using such a setup meaningful/harmful?
Thanks in advance.
