    OT:Computer peripheals

    Hello All -
    Has anybody heard/read/discussed as to when E/IDE interface (for hard drives and dvd burners) will be phased out of production in lieu of SATA? The formula for an E/IDE Blu Ray burner just doesn't give me much confidence...

    The production on ata/ide hard drives have slowed down immensely over the last couple of years but i don't see them dieing out too soon. i dont think you can get a dlu ray burning that uses ata. i don't see why it wouldn't work, it'd just take a few hours...

    I think one of these days someone will realize that a parallel interface can operate much faster for data transfer than a serial interface and may even create a media connection interface that supports parallel data transfer. Until then, SATA it is!

    SCIS is a parallel interface and it's fast too but it's just too expensive whic is why i believe sata was invented

    OK then, I wasn't too sure if anybody came across any talk. Of course I haven't - that's why I was asking.

    Thanks for your responses.

    That's SCSI, but what I was referring to above was IDE/ATA (now called "PATA" as it is parallel).
