Hi,

I have an Amiga 2000 and I'm considering getting a Firebird. I also have a V4SA. For those of you that have both (or any other Amiga) and those who also do not have a financial stake in the Vampire, what are the advantages and disadvantages between them? Meaning, which will one do better than the other, (i.e. expansion cards, device speed, features, compatibility). What differences are you guys actually seeing?

Thanks,

Mike

Both cards are very very similar. Both have same speed, same CPU, same amount of memory, same ethernet chip, same video modes.

And expansion card compatibility with both? Anything that won't run if Firebird is installed?

Do you ask if there are expansion cards for V4Sa or Firebird?
Yes there are expansion options, like RTC for example.
