Adaptec 2940 AU or Tekram DC310 SCSI Controller?
Posted on 1998-09-28
I'm getting my older Pentium running Win95 OSR2 upgraded. I have 3 HD (540 MB to 6.2 MB) and 2 CD ROMS, all SCSI II. The vendor promised an Adaptec 2940 AU, but now he can't get one. He suggested a Tekram DC310 instead, for less $. I've looked at the specs for both--the Adapted Async rate is 3MB/Sec and it supports SCSI-1, SCSI-2, SCSI-3, Ultra SCSI; the Tekram Asnyc rate is 5MB/Sec and it only support SCSI II.
I don't want to be stuck with an older SCSI controller when I choose to add newer devices, which seems to be the main drawback of the Tekram card.
My question: Should I stick with the Adaptec?
