Which kind of burner is better?

Are the SATA burners better than the PATA ones? :confused:

No.

But SATA drives are nearly the only option if a new Intel based mainboard is used, that comes without a native PATA controller.

Thank you. I will not throw away my PATA Raid controller cards.

I have both and 16X,18X,20X etc… are all the same timings. SATA has smaller wires for better air flow.

The round IDE cable is about same size as SATA cable.

yeah i have round cables also but SATA cables are still smaller :slight_smile:

It’s just whatever a person wants to have.
