I only know what I've read, but I hear that SCSI is better for real RAID,
because it handles concurrent multiple requests better than IDE. 

Other than that, I understand that the internal mechanisms are pretty
much the same now, so raw bit rate favors IDE slightly. (Which would
make sense, IDE not having to deal with the complexity of multiple
concurrent requests.) So, if you're not using RAID, it seems reasonable
to buy the cheaper drives. (Does routing need RAID?)
