I too use adaptec, this is not an issue of teh quality fo eth host
adapter. The problem is that Scanners are slooooow, and some of
them can interfere with, or slow down access to the faster disks.
It may well be that a good host adapter and a well behaved scanner may not
exibit any problems, but so far it looks to me as though few scanners are
all that well behaved.
