I voted ACSI port. It makes things pretty tough when you want to use mass storage on your ST. The Atari ST uses standard ports for almost everything, so why not for drives?

I voted "Other". As the design for the *business unit* behind the product was a major flaw. It was cause for Atari ignoring the logical advice of focus groups(if it actually formed any at all), customers industry publications. Marketing was left to NAMM, CES coverage and word of mouth -pretty much. ...
