I remember doing a LOT of research on which card I was going to buy at
the time, none of them were cheap, and I think the P-IV was actually
more expensive than the others, but there were features about it that
made it really stand out as the obvious choice.  The onboard SD/FF was
probably one of those features that drew me to it.  It's been a LONG
time since I did that, nearly 10, I'd imagine.  Time to hunt through my
old mail.

Yes, in fact, I originally ordered a Cybervision card, but changed my
mind before they shipped and changed it to the P-IV, before they were
even shipping.  This was also what prompted me to upgrade to OS 3.1, the
card had this as a pre-req.  All the changes to my order were handled
via email with softhut.com, they were very patient with my final order
being nothing like my original.
