Hi all,

Just curious as to when the 'Gurus expect to have this item in stock?

This is a great card. I recently used it to replace a TurboMax 33 card. Installation was amazingly simple - disconnect the IDE drive, remove the TurboMax, pop in the Sonnet, reconnect the IDE drive, reboot and zap the PRAM. I didn't have to reformat the drive (using Apple's drivers) either and now I actually have access to 40 GB of data under Mac OS X that I didn't have when I used the TurboMax card. I had a slight speed boost according to ATTO's benchmarks and now my MP3's don't skip when I do other things (I didn't even need Sonnet's AV utility to slow down the card).

I went over to pricegrabber.com and had mine shipped to me for less than $100.

However, now I have a TurboMax 33 card I need to sell...
