  Adaptec 29160 SCSI Card 
  Jul 20, 2001, 10:00am EDT 


By: Sander Sassen

Adaptec's SCSI Card 29160 is not just a harddisk controller, it is a very versatile I/O controller which allows you to connect up to fifteen SCSI devices ranging from Ultra160 SCSI drives to scanners and CDROMs. The Adaptec SCSI Card 29160 will undoubtedly satisfy your future upgrade needs, whether professional or home, as it supports practically all legacy SCSI devices, thus providing a very easy and flexible way to add new devices to any existing system.

Furthermore the Adaptec SCSI Card 29160 comes with support for every major operating system, including Linux, Unix, Solaris and of course Windows 95/98, NT 4.0, and 2000.

Therefore the Adaptec SCSI Card 29160 comes recommended for those who need the best performance for demanding or mission-critical applications. A typical application where this adapter will really shine is the professional workstation or mainstream server, as it provides very high performance on a single channel 64-bit PCI card, with both internal and external connections for Ultra160 hard disks. For the home user it might be a little too expensive, and even a bit of overkill. But you might find some of the other cards in Adaptec's Ultra160 line of SCSI adapters more attractive in that environment, especially considering that they're priced below Adaptec's previous line of Ultra Wide and Ultra2 Wide SCSI controllers.
