Ultra-Wide SCSI runs at 40 MB/s.  Ultra2-Wide (aka U2W) SCSI runs at
80MB/s.  Also note that the speeds here are in megabyte/sec, not
megabit/sec, unlike most other things.

This may be what got you confused since there officially isn't any
"Fast Wide" SCSI, but some vendors incorrectly use it to mean Ultra
Wide.  It confuses everybody.  Shame on them :-)

This is correct, if one uses MB/s instead of Mb/s :-)
