View Full Version : FW800/Drive RPM/eMac storage options

Apr 16, 2004, 10:29 PM
Two basic and fairly unrelated questions:

Before FW800 arrived, I was under the impression that hard drive speeds were so slow in comparison to the rest of a computer's bus speeds that any given external FW drive only uses a fraction of FW 400's available bandwidth. With the advent of FW 800 drives, am I to assume that my previous assumption is false?

Second, can a user upgrade the latest eMac's Ultra ATA HD? As in, swap the anemic 40GB drive out of the low end model and replace it with a larger Ultra ATA drive?

Thanks for your help!
