True enuf, I dont really have a problem with it being external, I just think the explanation was a little silly. If the explanation had been, "an external design means adding and removing CF cards is simple, fast and safe" no one could fault that.
Considering the Overall expense tho, it really should come with a proper case - imo to be a really useful accelerator, the aca500 needs at least an aca1220 added. So right there you are already up for $200USD and you still dont have a case for it.
anyway I think I've said enuf.
