Fresh3D heeft een review van de Diamond Fireport 40 SCSI controller gepost. De grootste concurrent van de Fireport is uiteraard de Adaptech 2940. Ondanks het enorme prijsverschil (de 2940 is belachelijk duur) komt de Fireport er beter vanaf:
think most clear-headed but slightly cynical users will not believe upstart Diamond could put out a better SCSI card than industry veteran Adaptec. I hate to break it to you guys, but the FirePort 40 creamed the Adaptec 2940UW in all tests. How can this be, you ask? Well, I really can't say, but I think Adaptec may have been a bit too sure of themselves and didn't bother to optimise it anywhere near as much as Diamond did. Little speed tweaks and the like. One would think this could cause instabilities, but I disagree. I have been running the FirePort 40 for months now (this review is a bit late coming, as we were waiting on a 2940UW) and not once experienced any sort of problem with the FirePort 40.
