PROs and CONs

Pro's of SATA: Simple installation, dirt cheap drives (GB/$$$ wise), huge drives (going to 750GB)
Con's: Slower then SCSI in seek times (looking for small files)

For SCSI
Pro: Amazing seek times; lightning fast read/write speeds and very reliable drives (designed for servers).
Con: EXPENSIVE, not only the drives, but also the controllers; motors give off a lot of heat; and relative small HD's.
