Comment: SCSI (Score 1) 444

It used to be, that SCSI drives were commercial quality and expensive, and IDE drives were junk consumer. But SCSI drives were expected to be adequately cooled, and some of the old Seagate 4GB SCSI drives had a high failure rate because of inadequate cooling. I wonder if this doesn't translate into modern drives as well, with Seagate expecting that its cooling requirements be followed, or exceeded, while others are more suited to punishment.
