Subject:SCSI versus IDE From:Charles Sides <csides -at- FSCVAX -dot- FSC -dot- MASS -dot- EDU> Date:Fri, 5 May 1995 11:48:21 EDT
My request for information concerning Syquest versus CD-R was so fruitful
that I decided to venture forth once more--with apologies to those on the
list who do not enjoy reading this sort of thing.
The question: If you planned to push multimedia development (using such
software as Action, IconAuthor, Photoshop, as well as video, audio, animation
and stills as source material) through a Pentium-100, would you be better
off with SCSI already on board or with an IDE machine to which you would
attach a SCSI adaptor?
