[filmscanners] RE: keeping the 16bit scans



These days I suspect that all the brands are more or less the same in terms
of fail rates and ech goes through periods when they have a model or
production run that has problems.  I just noticed that with the increase in
size and speed there seems to have been a proportional increase in the
probability that an EIDE drive will fail within  1 1/2 years of its
purchase.  I acknowledge that it may be because the larger sized models (
120 GB and greater) and the 7200 rpm  models are releatively new and
encountering unexpected problems which did not show up in the smaller drives
or the slower ones that need to be worked out and probably are being worked
out for future models.

Personally, I wouldn't touch either one of those brands. I stick with
IBM and Seagate, although had I not skipped a generation and got one of
the 75 gig IBM's I would probably be cursing IBM. Sometimes a vendor has
a bad model. Personally, I like the Seagates because they're so
unbelievably quiet. I'm talking about 7200 rpm and lower, not the
noisier 10K and 15K speed demons. I believe they're only SCSI anyhow,
way beyond my means. I really don't get the point of SCSI disks anymore,
except in servers. I have them at work in my workstation but I really
can't say they make a difference to a C++ compiler, which is the
software I mostly use. We're talking compute-bound when dealing with
compilers, and probably with PS, too.
