Sander Sassen van Hardware Central heeft een review klaarliggen van de Adaptec 29160 SCSI controller die gebruik kan maken van 64-bits PCI sloten waardoor de maximale bandbreedte voor bv. Ultra160 harddisks benut kan worden. Hieronder een hap uit de conclusie:
If we look at the stellar performance of the Adaptec SCSI Card 29160 combined with Quantum’s Atlas V we can simply state that this is one of the fastest single disk subsystems currently available. It comes at a price; but then the Adaptec SCSI Card 29160 is not just a harddisk controller, it is a very versatile I/O controller which allows you to connect up to fifteen SCSI devices ranging from Ultra160 SCSI drives to scanners and CDROMs. The Adaptec SCSI Card 29160 will undoubtedly satisfy your future upgrade needs, whether professional or home, as it supports practically all legacy SCSI devices, thus providing a very easy and flexible way to add new devices to any existing system.
Furthermore the Adaptec SCSI Card 29160 comes with support for every major operating system, including Linux, Unix, Solaris and of course Windows 95/98, NT 4.0, and 2000.
Therefore the Adaptec SCSI Card 29160 comes highly recommended for those who indeed need the best of performance for demanding or mission-critical applications. A typical application where this adapter will really shine is the professional workstation or mainstream server, as it provides very high performance on a single channel 64-bit PCI card, with both internal and external connections for Ultra160 hard disks.
