Video Solution vs. 840AV -- Mark Anbinder writes:

According to Apple, the Apple Professional Video Production Solution, announced on 03-Jan-94 but not yet shipping, is not compatible with the Quadra 840AV. Early product data sheets incorrectly indicated that the bundle could be used with the 840AV, as well as the Quadra 800 and 950 models.

The Professional Video Production Solution bundle includes a Storage Dimensions MacInStor SpeedArray 2 GB external hard disk that interfaces with the processor direct slot on the Quadra 800 and 950; the 840AV lacks a PDS and does not support the disk.
