I am building an external enclosure to hold a few DVD drives and a hard disc or two and I needed input on some basic questions.
If I am going to be connected to firewire 400 (1394a) on my computer, is there any benefit in speed or otherwise by having the bridge boards be firewire 800 (1394b)?
Is there any benefit accrued by using the Oxford 911 Plus chipset over the 911?
It looks like I can choose between the Oxford chipset or the Initio chipset. Is either one better when it comes to DVD.
For reference, only one drive, my NEC 3500, will be used for burning and at nothing over 8X. The other drives will be read only or will be hard drives, and no two drives will be used at the same time.
