That is the point. SCSI disks have historically outperformed IDE drives. It is only in the last few years that the gap has started to narrow. I also depends on the operation. I have had really old SCSI drives outperform much newer IDE drives under certain conditions. Specially where there is lots of random I/O at the same time there is multi-user access patterns. I think it really comes down to whether the user wants the absolute performance (ie go with SCSI), or wants a better value for the money in which case IDE would probably be the choice. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
