The Topic:
SCSI vs. IDE?


The Question:
weasel  
How do I convince my friend that IDE CD burners are not worth the trouble, and that he should spring the extra cash for a nice Plextor SCSI one?

Responses:
Dilbert  
Hmmm... well, you know what? I'm tired of always having to answer the technical questions. I'm going to let my niece Karen take over the technical stuff for a while.

Karen the Computer Engineer  
Hi there! I'm new here, so forgive me if I don't do everything right.

Karen the Computer Engineer  
So, SCSI vs IDE, huh? Somehow when you described this place, you made it seem more interesting than this, Uncle Dilbert.

Dilbert  
Well... uh.... maybe it's more interesting... usually.

Karen the Computer Engineer  
Well, nevermind. Ok, back to the question. I'd say that yes, SCSI burners tend to be better, and suffer from fewer buffer underruns or burn hiccups, especially when they're on their own SCSI bus.

Karen the Computer Engineer  
But then again, it's your friend's money, and it's not like you own stock in "The SCSI Corporation", so let him get an IDE drive, it'll be cheaper!

Karen the Computer Engineer  
How'd I do?

Dilbert  
Not bad, but you weren't funny.

Karen the Computer Engineer  
I have to be funny too? Jeez, this is hard.
