    What's the largest SD card you can use on these?

    Also what sort of transfer speed is achievable?

    Thanks

    I see you have two scsi sd adapters listed on your site, what is the difference between them as the price different is quite substantial. Also which would be best suited to use with a cdtv scsi kit?

    I think:

    1264 = SCSI II interface
    1314 = Fast SCSI II interface


    SCSI standards

    These are good value but like the mechware scsi reader you wont get full scsi-2 speeds, more like 2mb/sec but don't forget less CPU overhead vs IDE.

    SCSI-2 can get to 10-11mb/sec with a proper HDD or SCSI-IDE bridge. Without A-sync 5-6mb/sec

    Ah so the version 6 is full speed. Nice

    I would suggest you're probably only limited by the Amiga File system used unless you want to try some 500gb MicroSD lol.

    I think for your CDTV the cheaper version be fine, for something CSMKII/WarpEngine SCSI the faster one be better.

    You're welcome, I looked at a few of these when I had my old 1230 scsi kit, such as the Aztec Monster, I was always put off by the slow speeds but even at 2.5mb/sec you do notice an improvement with CPU intensive stuff. The version 6 looks interesting mind.

    I had a mech ware scsi reader for a while, that was a great bit of kit as it could read all types of cards and mounted in a floppy bay.

    Depending on application a scsi to Ide bridge and real HD or SSD would give the best performance but even they're quite expensive now.

    I've got a SCSI HD on my WarpEngine.

    Just thinking about the day the HD may go tits up.

    You definitely want the version 6 then or a scsi to Ide adapter and SSD/modern HDD to enjoy the full speed of the glorious warp scsi

    A little tip regarding scsi to Ide adapters, you can't mount them on the back of the HDD in an A4000, you need to extend them with a short Ide cable which can be messy, the scsi SD adapter would be tidier and improve the heat /airflow in the case.
