Re: OT: scsi vs ide: some data - "features" and ide-to-scsi

hi ya paul, brian

i like the following "feature list"

- disk reliability -- stays up and running

- functionality -- does what its supposed to do

- costs -- can be replicated if needed (disk crash) within an hour or day
	-- not a major budget issue

- expandability  -- into other "file servers"

- speed -- ??? doesnt matter... no disk can sustain 100MB/sec 
	or anything near its rated capacity 

system failures...

anybody seen (using) these IDE to scsi-3 convertors ???


have fun
