Mixing SCSI types on a bus (was RE: cheapest SX System i ever have seen)


 While looking for another Drive for my XL300, I was told that they did
had had problems putting UW disks on older busses, but that older disks on
a UW controller worked fine. Is this so that they could charge me the added
cost of controller (the 2W and UW drives are the same price !!!)

i'd be interested in the articles ( if u remem )
but like anything on the scsi bus, xfer's to/from the device is at the speed of
the device. I think my tape drive goes at 4.x megabytes/sec. Therefor the 2k
block xfer would take 4 times longer on that tape drive than from a disk drive.
there is really nothin u kan do about this ( everyone else has to wait )
