I'm thinking about getting a CFFA3000 now that the fall run is in production, and I see a competing product from Ultimate Apple called the MicroDrive/Turbo IDE controller. It advertises as full DMA compatible, which makes it up to 40% faster than other controllers with reduced CPU overhead. I also read that the CFFA3000 hardware could support DMA, but it has not been enabled, and hasn't had any progress in that area for many years.
So is the MicroDrive/Turbo really that much better? Has anyone put the two units head to head?
