  Best adaptor is ... IDE 99 as usual (4 buffered devices).
  EXTERNAL LINK 
Note: Its perfect for A600 Vamp model. Wait for V500 experiences.

At one point I had 2 hard drives and 2 cd-roms connected and being used in my Amiga, for no reason more than that I could, and that it was cool ^^ both hard drives were 40 GB drives, so the likelyhood that I would fill them up was... low? :) however, it did allow for some really specific file catalogization. It was pretty useful for when it came to work partitions, really

I was using the EIDE 99 adapter btw. Pretty good buffer, if you ask me
