Hardware News   Hardware News : FREE 512MB USB Flash Drive with purchase of SPIDER card!
   posted by DJS on 30-Sep-2006 1:42:56 (2225 reads)
Elbox Computer announces promotion for all SPIDER Hi-Speed USB 2.0 cards purchased in the Elbox Online Store between 30 September and 15 October 2006. With every SPIDER card purchased in the promotion period in the Elbox Online Store the end-user will receive a FREE 512MB Hi-Speed USB 2.0 Flash Drive enclosed with the SPIDER shipment.

About the SPIDER Hi-Speed USB 2.0 PCI card:

The SPIDER Hi-Speed USB 2.0 PCI card provides a simple and affordable way to add 5 Hi-Speed USB 2.0 ports to your computer. SPIDER is the most powerful USB controller for Amiga computers. The Hi-Speed USB 2.0 (EHCI) and USB 1.1 (OHCI) drivers for MEDIATOR PCI and AMITHLON systems are enclosed on the SpiderCD. These drivers work under control of the Poseidon USB stack for AmigaOS.

About USB Flash Drive:

The Flash Drive with Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interface is a mobile storage device for storing and exchanging data of any type. It plugs straight into any USB port and is recognised by the computer as another hard drive. This key-size, shock-resistant universal device functions without external power supply and transfers data several times faster than a floppy drive. The Flash Drive memory can be re-written more than one million times and can keep the stored data for more than 10 years. The USB Flash Drive can be used as a personal, fast, portable storage device, which fits with the keychain or in the pocket. It is an excellent alternative to removable media drives for those who need to have their data at any place and at any time.

Order your SPIDER USB PCI card Now and get a gift: 512MB USB Flash Drive!

Since this is meant to be news and not as advert, I comment on this.

Both a USB2 card and a 512MB USB stick are available in Germany at least
for under 10 Euro each including taxes.
This means "just" the driver costs over 40 Euro? Normally over 50?
Not to mention that when some company buys a crate of cards they
normally cost less than what they are selling them for.

There is not even an USB-stack included, just a demo of Poseidon.

Poseidon costs annother 38 Euro and as alternative to the spider
there is available.

I think of expensive too but Amigaguys can be ripped off easily;)
I would pay for a new compatible os4 capable machine with usb2 or usb2.0 -card for the A1 but the pc cards don't work strait or am I wrong?
Here we have quite cheap HW from competition even locally but Germany beats the prices usually. Alltough credits to the Amigaretailers but if there is HW more cheaply from my neighbour how come it can be so much more expensive at "big cities" ?

I understand the work but is there no money for getting quantities for a reasonable price from factories or a place where "everyone can buy twenty and get a discount" and all should then respect & buy even if a little bit more than from a "pc-store".

Still looking forward to buy a netprogram etc for os4 if ever available;)
