I've never used it.

How does the suggested lower resolution/colour depth affect SCSI stability?

My Falcon had loads of SCSI related problems after the AB040 and Nemesis
were fitted. I tried various tricks such as the shielded lead, shortening
cables, rerouting to avoid power leads, etc and the one which worked for me
was reversing the direction of (I think) the inductor which went from the
Nemesis to a leg on the DMA. After this I could run in various colour
modes/res's without a whiff of trouble.
