Seagate Cheetah 36XL 18.2 gigabyte Ultra - FrostyTech.com Seagate Cheetah 36XL 18.2 gigabyte Ultra
Wed Jul 11, 2001 | 9:58P| PermaLink
The Seagate drive I'm testing today is the 18.2-gigabyte Ultra160 10,000 RPM Cheetah (ST318405LW). The drive itself isn't much different from most SCSI drives on the market now. The company claims the drive is 15 percent faster than earlier models. There are two things that I remember about the first SCSI drive I had -- a 9-gigabyte Seagate Barracuda: it was a half-height drive that needed lots of room for its large amount of heat, and it was loud. Performance has come a long way since then. SCSI drives now, while not quite reaching the levels of IDE drives, are much quieter, smaller and cooler than they used to be. In some ways, SCSI has gotten the short end of the stick; while the drives are essentially the same as IDE, SCSI drives cost much more, relegating it to the role of a niche market player. It takes someone with a very specific purpose in mind to justify paying nearly a thousand dollars for a SCSI drive that has an equivalent IDE drive priced at $200. This is why SCSI drives are generally beyond the person building a PC for personal use -- most people simply don't need it. Those who do, however, have many different drives to choose from, including this offering from Seagate. The sort of people who need SCSI are those who have multiple disk drives performing many tasks at once. SCSI allows more than one device to issue commands at the same time. In IDE drives, only one command can be issued -- say, a read command on a CD-ROM. This means that the other devices have to wait for that command to be sent before they can go along doing their own thing. In SCSI, multiple commands may be sent, making it much more efficient for multitasking and having multiple drives.
