    Thanks for all the replies, good to have a varied response.

    Boyan- have you used them on a lathe, or know of examples on a lathe?

    So the Ethernet looks to be the best then from a practical standpoint, is there any performance benefit for pci over Ethernet?

    If you a thinking linuxcnc then there is no difference in performance but if you want a longer cable from the pc to the control box then Ethernet is the winner.

    I use Ethernet with Mach3 to a Russian controller on the router.

    I have no experience with the UC300ETH so can't comment.

    You will have to think if threading is important and if you want to control the spindle speed to be able to use G96 CSP like;- http://www.mmsonline.com/columns/the...-surface-speed

    Being able to use diameter mode or radius mode etc. and ATC need to be considered if you so wish.

    The UC300ETH has a maximum pulsing of 400kHz but my drivers support maximum 200kHz only. I don't know the PCI card so I can't compare.

    better get over to the Linux and UCCNC forums to see what suits my needs then.

    Got a spare Dell OptiPlex with a parallel port so might have to set it up and have a play. Cheers
