I have a A2000 with a 50hz 030 and a v5.1. I'm getting between 1.8 and 2.1 from sysinfo.Zippy Zapp wrote: ↑Fri Oct 16, 2020 7:39 amI have a couple of these and they are nice. The difference between the v5.1 and the V6 are noticeable if you have a fast enough Mac or Amiga. For stock A500s or A2000s then a v5.1 is certainly fine from what I can tell. Same goes for older Macs. If you have a PowerPC Mac then a 6 would be a faster solution.
The other difference between the 2 versions is that with the version 6 you actually save all the config information on the SD card itself. This makes it nice to pre-configure a few different SD cards for use with different setups and save it to individual SD cards. Then you only need to swap the SD cards out. With the V5.1 you actually configure and save the data to the device itself. So if you use it with different systems then you have to reconfigure the device each time. This makes the V6 a better solution if you want to use it with different systems, IMHO anyway.
The v6 apparently lets you mount the storage on your desktop since it supports a type of bridge mode that the v5.1 does not.
I don't think it'll be that much faster. The speed seems to depend on your SCSI card.
