I have never used one personally, but I have reports that it works
well, and reaches it's rated speed with sane.

The CGA board is a useless waste of money, I have no idea why Fujitsu
still sells them. The only thing weird about the 6670 and 6770 is that
they cannot be woken up from power saving mode by software. But,
sticking a paper into them wakes them up.
