Hi Magician:
Cost preformance wise, and driver support for os X, I am looking at a Miles 2 vs. Adaptec 2940U2 that you have on special.

Your sales pitch on the 2940 is very good, and I figure since the Grackle chip is maxed at 75 MB/sec, why not get a 500 card out, and use it in a machine that might run another 50 MB/sec faster?

How much slower is the 2940B then the Miles 2 Card?

Thanks

about 2-3MB/sec, Greg.

definitely not enough to tip the scales in favor of the Miles2 in your case. You already own SoftRAID.
