[filmscanners] Re: Slightly OT: Hard Drive Speed

You can selectively quote big price lists in both directions.

For instance below are two adjacent entries from pricewatch.com.

In this case the IDE drive is four times the size of the SCSI drive for the
same cost.

Personally I feel that's a more accurate reflection of the market.

 9.1GB SCSI QM309100XC-SCA 7200RPM 80PIN SCA 3.5LP XC009J2 GSA # GS-35F-0171M
 XC009J2 80-Pin, 9.1GB, 7200rpm, 6.3ms access time, 4MB cache buffer,
$ 100

 Ultra DMA/100 eide 40.0GB
 8.5ms 7200rpm 2048K 3 Year Warranty
$ 101
