external USB vs external SCSI harddisks?
Posted on 2003-02-20
I wonder if you guys could help me out with the following scenario:
I have a P3-600 laptop running W2K-server and I want more storage space... I recon there are 2 options to accomplish this:
1. Build my Adaptec 2940 UW SCSI adapter into it's docking base and connect this to an external SCSI box containing my 10k rpm 16GB disk (and maybe more)
Pro: Fast, low load on processor, ability to expand (ie cd/rw, extra hd, etc)
Contra: I now use the controller and HD in my main pc...
2. USB external HD storage
Contra: Processor load? Speed? Dunno?
Can you give me some advice on this? I want a fast, but not too expensive solution (if possible)
Thanx in advance,
