[filmscanners] Re: Slightly OT: Hard Drive Speed



Moreno , please, give up ! with such a flame ... I am a 21 years old IBM
Sales Representative and I can assure you cannot compare apple to apple in
such a manner ... first of all a 100GB as got an owful throughput provided
the inherent density of data per actuator ... it is almost unfair toward the
IDE drive (and this is avoiding to speak about IDE protocol bottle necks).
Second ... the IBM List prices could be quite different from the STREET
PRICES ... please, go wherever you want and ask for the REALLY PRACTICED
PRICE (street price) if you don't want accept eBay prices for SEALED NEW and
under 3 years international warranties .

Despite I am a 21 old IBM Sales Man (Unix Systems and not Netfinity) ... my
systems at home are clones self assembled , but with IBM HDD (1 x 36GB U-160
+ 3 x 18GB U-160 with Adaptec 29160 ... and slower SCSI U2FWs on the other
systems (2)..)

The 5x18.2GB I have already referenced are SEALED NEW and labelled as Compaq
! and they will be driven by a MYLEX (again IBM ... damned !) SCSI-U2FW
80MB/s on 2 chains ... with INTEL i960 chip ... and I have bought it for 65$
(not 500) new and under warranty on eBay again ...
What about the price/performance of a RAID0,1,3,5 IDE ???????? capable of 15
drives ... please compare this and then ... apples will be compared with
apples and pears with pears ...
I think you will NEVER put everything on a single drive IDE or SCSI it could
be ... or you will have an orrible bottleneck on the actuators (at least)
... isn't it ?

Sincerely.

>> Please name the two drives you are claiming are a FIVE times price
increase
for SCSI vs IDE.<<

I looked up wholesale pricing for the IBM 18gb SCSI drive being discussed,
vs a 7200 rpm 100gb IDE drive for the same price and posted the results in a
previous message. The SCSI drive costs more than 5x per gb than the IDE. My
source was Tech Data, one of the largest computer distributors in Canada.
