    The only real caveat is; how FAST do you want to boot. Oh, and some older cards don't actually support IDE emulation mode (though those would be too small to be considered, anyway).

    My advice; if you're half way technically savvy then it might be an idea to (a) use powered hubs and (b) modify said hubs so they'll ONLY be powered by the external power and not through the PC. This...

    Excellent, thanks. In that case I'll probably go with the EBY-701 for my project.

    Bump!

    No-one? I'd presume at least someone here has experience with both. If it helps, I'd like to know if the EBY-701 will fit properly in a very tight double-din slot (no headroom or "footroom"...

    Lilliput EBY-701 / 629

    I'm working on a new project; my car PC in my Subaru SVX. Anyway, I've reached a bit of a quandry on the screen question; should I use a Lilliput 629 or an EBY-701?
