FastATA ZIV



nice device although,these have been capable of doing this from day one(back when these devises where on the 1200 and called power flyers) although there was no sata bridges around at the time.(sata bridge sold seprately)
also you can put a sata bridge on the native ide port(although you wont get these sort of transfer speeds)
you can also do this with the fastata 4 for the 1200.(again sata bridge sold seprately)


my only problem is,you will never reach the stated 16mbs transfer speeds because its just a sales hype.(these figures where probably taken from the max figure eide can do)
the most you will ever get from it is around 8-9mbs max on a 68k machine.(depending on cpu used)
also because its cpu intensive (as is all ide)dont expect it to be like scsi drives on an amiga.


this is not a dig at these, just my opinion as i think there a nice peice of kit.(just that some of the info on them is a bit misleading)
