    i don't have any experience with that drive...but I am curious as to why you're looking to get one when you've got 2 sata Raptors?

    I guess you know the Seagate Cheetah seires is scsi and fibre channel? but I guess you could use one as a hot plate for keeping your coffee warm :D

    Probably because it could outperform his raptors quite easy even though it wouldn't be cheap, besides money doesn't seem like beein to mutch of an object there.. :devil win

    Btw what does a real sweet scsi card cost, like $600- $1000..? Then ya got to buy the drive to.. lol

    The cost of the scsi card really depends on what u intend to do with it, whether u want stripping, mirroring, stripping with parity etc, whether u want it the drives to be hot swapable, and how many drives u want in the array. A basic card can go for $100, and easily upwards of $3k for some of the really nice cards. Then there is also how fast u want to be able to build an array witha ocntroller. Some of the cheaper cards can take a couple days to build an array, while the more expensive ones can do it instantly or quite quickly at least.

    A 15k, 36gig scsi tends to be about 3 times the price of a raptor drive, where the 147 gig drives can hit $2k a piece for a 15k rpm drive, but u dont need to be worried about them failing.

    They better not fail with that price.. :)

    On the other hand those drives can be found in BIG mega servers belonging to people who won't be stuck eating cerials every day if they have to buy a new one..

    I've built a few graphics machines that have those drives in them, really quite nice machines, dual xeon, 4 gb ram, ... so hot!

    A 15K SCSI 36 G drive goes for about $155 US compared to about $135 for a SATA 36 G Raptor....

    But I'd wait. In a few months we'll have Serial Attached SCSI and the same MoBo connector will allow you to plug in either a SASCSI or a SATA drive into the same port.
