The 4xEIDE does much more than just buffering. It even comes with a licensed copy of AllegroCDFS to get Atapi CDROMs working very easily and conveniently.

One of its downsides is that it needs a driver that has to be loaded from the very top of startup-sequence, forcing a reboot afterwards. While the adapter itself somewhat accelerates the built-in IDE of the 1200, the additional reboot means longer startup times.

There are much simpler buffered IDE interfaces around that work without a driver.
