5. Ok do scsi  have lees failure rate whats  the failure rate ..??
1. >> do it eefects on perfomance and speed <<     Yes.

2. >> whats  the effect of controller on performance and speed <<  It is what set the Maximum speed of the bus.
Fast controller + slow drive = slow preformance.
Slow controller + fast drive = slow preformance.
Fast controller + fast drive = fast preformance.

3. >> In general whats the RPM <<  The most common spindle speeds today are; IDE - 5400 to 7200rpm.  SATA - 7200 to 10,000rpm. SCSI - 10,000 to 15,000rpm.

4. >> can  a sata II... be used  as an replacement of SCSI <<  Can you put a SATA drive on a SCSI bus?  No.
Can you use SATA instead of SCSI? Yes. But SCSI still is more dependable and faster for systems that run 24/7.

5. >> do scsi  have lees failure rate << Currently, Yes. But SATA and IDE are getting better.
>> whats  the failure rate <<  I don't know, off the top of my head. But it is up in the years.
