Default Reliable ATA66 cards for beige G3 and PT5 LE?

Anyone know if the new Sonnet, TurboMax or Acard ATA66 pci cards exhibit the same problems as the ATA33 TurboMax card? (butchers audio) I'm looking for a faster bootable interface for my beige G3, and can't afford UWSCSI and keep upgrading plug-ins...

(fyi Mac users can't use just any old ata card)

Along with the firewire question it would be good to know if the ata66 cards work for audio as it represents a much cheaper option than scsi,I'm still saving to buy an ultra wide card and drive untill theres some positive feedback on these issues.Anyone?

Im using the sonnet tempo ATA/66 card and so far it seems to be working perfectly. Im using a 40 gig Western Digital drive with it. I have a BW G3.

On the othere hand I just purchased a Pyro drive kit ADS technologies and another Western Digital drive, this one 5400 rpm just to store files and have had no luck getting it to work, bad data corrution. I know others have used this kit with a G4 with great results but so far no luck in my case. Im ready to send it back
