I will add that, if I were still using my CoCo as a primary system, I would want something that does no-halt, like the KenTon did and SuperIDE did. During disk access under OS-9/CoCoSDC, I lose characters while typing. Also, the hard drive adapters were faster for disk I/O.
There are SCSI-SD card adapters (which I plan to use on my MM/1), but nothing beats the tiny form factor of the CoCoSDC (yet?).
