The adapter is more or less exactly the same as the one in Mega STE, with the exception that it actually can handle 2 hardrives without modification if I remember correctly.
It is slower than most SCSI interfaces, lacks support for parity (although plans for adding it are available at many places, and it is not even difficult.)

Parity can be easily added, true.
Btw. ACSI-SCSI adapters should not affect speed at all - they are relative simple adapters, which just convert some commands, parameters and bus signals.
