The MicroDrive card can function in two ways: as a controller card for one or two external IDE hard disk drives, or as a "hard card" with a mounted 2.5" hard disk (portable size) mechanism. It will allow up to two 256 MB disks to be connected. It can also function as a replacement for the Vulcan and Vulcan Gold controller cards, allowing you to install newer, larger hard disks in your Vulcan.
The good news about the MicroDrive card is not just the claims that are made for it regarding speed (such as booting into ProDOS 8 in 1 second) but also that the card is shipping now. This is not "vaporware"...in fact, the MicroDrive card has been sol d in Germany for the past year. This is its U.S. debut.
While I do not have a MicroDrive card now, I can say that technical support on both GEnie and the Internet is great! I have learned a lot about ///SHH Systeme's products just from reading posts in their category on the GEnie Apple II Bulletin Board an d the comp.sys.apple2 newsgroup on Usenet.
The MicroDrive Card carries a one year limited warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. Software and ROM updates (if needed) will be available on GEnie A2 library or can be sent via internet e-mail.
