until now I used a dozen of Alix6 with both CF and ide hdd and I am quiet happy of this system, anyway I never enabled Udma mode, so I ask you people if there is any downside on enabling it. On alix doc I read 'use at your own risk' so what kind of risk? All CF I used report to support Ultra DMA mode 0-5(4 as default) http://shop.varia-store.com/product_info.php?info=p832_1-GB-Transcend-Industrial-CompactFlash-Card-TS1GCF200I.html and hdd are pata WD Scorpio Blue wich are Udma 5.
If there's no downside in my environment what is the expected speed improvment?
Thanks in advance
