When we started doing PCI designs we used Jungo with PLX devices.
The PLX SDK is has come a long and I have glady dumped Jungo.
I've never even remotly missed Jungo, the PLX's SDK does every
thing I need.
Jungo is very expensive to buy AND very expensive to maintain.
Also, almost EVERY service pack released by Microsoft for
NT or XP crashes while installing when Jungo is installed.
You have to wait for Jungo to come out with a fix (if your
maintenace is up to date and paid for that is) before you can
install the service pack.
Jungo offers a fully functional 30 day demo (or used to any ways).
Try both and see which app you like the best.
