Go with the ATTO. They play nicer with OS X.

I have a 29160N in my dual 1.25, it plays nice with everything. I do, however, boot from the ATA bus.

Those are both dual-channel Ultra160 SCSI, right? The performance is gonna be comparable.

the ATTO is 64-bit/33mhz, while the adaptec is 32-bit/33mhz


would that make a difference ?
