03.006 How does the SpeeDemon rate as an accelerator for II+ and IIe Apples?

         In terms of raw performance (once you arrange for cooling), SpeeDemon may
be the best of the 4MHz accelerators for early II's. I've never noticed any
compatibility problems and the approx. X3.5 speed increase puts real 'snap'
into your machine's response. (Besides, it's great for games like Elite!)
