One nice thing about the aca500 is the external design (which admittedly i was critical of initially), it allows very easy access to the c.f. Slots, very easy install process and means you can share it between multiple a500's.
Kipper's products require a level of expertise some folks don't have. You also need a ks 2.05 or 3.1 Rom etc.
I have one and it's great, but would like an aca500 to share between my other 2 a500's.
