Does anybody know a site with a comparison of HD technologies. I would be interested in EIDE vs SATA vs SCSI (speed, performance, throughput, reliability)

Thanks

Hi,

A 15,000RPM SCSI 320 drive will kick the hell out of any SATA drive and easily cost you 3 times as much for just the drive. The controller will probably cost more than most SATA drive would too. SATA is an excellent solution for desktop use, and SCSI is mostly a server/high reliablilty/high speed application due to it's high costs.

The best performance period would be a 15K RMP Ultra 320 SCSI drive and the appropriate controller, unless you consider solid-state drives, which aren't really worth it at the moment. I suppose if you had the money, you could even run 2 of those SCSI drives in RAID.

Thanks for the articles, folks. They were interesting, but unfortunatelly no help for me. I really needed hard facts side by side. The only way to get that information was to call a HD manufacturer and talk to one of their techs. I have a list with all the data I was looking for for PATA, SATA and SCSI wide now and will have to balance price and performance.

My hope was somebody had done that job for me already :-(
