Thumbs up

Same here, and that 3Ware 4 port controller looks sweet (hardware based controller, vs. the mostly software implementations used on Highpoint / Promise controllers). But the $300+ price tag on most 3Ware hardware is a bit more than I'm ready to commit for RAID use in my house (I looked after reading the article linked on the front page).

(I may still end up with either a Highpoint or a Promise Serial-ATA RAID card, so long as I can get a 4 port jobbie and it includes the parallel to serial adapter for the hdd end of things, along with serial ATA cables. The idea of SLIM cables that don't need custom-wrapped / replaced with aftermarket rounded cables appeals to me greatly)

Default fast indeed.

But no diff. betweed EIDE HDDs and SATA HDDs.

I think I read SATA Engineering sample benchmark...

SATA was slightly (1~5Mb) faster but was slower than EIDE at few benchmark programs.

Take that with a grain of salt though, EIDE is an ancient architecture that has been perfected over many years; SATA should kick some serious butt once it has matured a little bit.

Plus now I don't have to worry about my IDE cables restricting airflow in my case
