Put one more on the list; I want the SCSI too.
I always had SCSI. Back in the old days, all writers were SCSI (I’m talking about a few years after the last ice age ;))
I still have a SCSI HP6020, Plex4/2/20 and Plex12/4/32 (and some Plex SCSI readers). Due to the official Plextor announcement that they had quit making SCSI devices, I was forced to buy a Plex IDE (40/12/40). It’s still a good writer though, but I agree with Dee-ehn; SCSI is what I prefer
It’s not just the CPU or memory usage, but also the high quality components and euhm “quite fast” transfer rates ;). No IDE ATA133 setup can get close to a 160MB/sec or 320MB/sec SCSI chain. OK, for normal use, you won’t see much difference between a 40x IDE copy and a 40x SCSI copy.
But when using the same PC for ripping a DVD, scanning some images, editing and printing those images while burning to 2 or 3 writers at the same time, I won’t like to count the times burnproof kicks in for an IDE setup. Or getting major hangups.
I already know how many times for SCSI: 0
Just my opinion. I’m sure lots of you don’t agree, but hey, it’s a discussion board
