Where do these numbers come from?
I see there has a been a correction to the numbers. It may help to clarify these numbers. One of the comments was about reads. Perhaps, it would be helpful to distinguish read performance from write performance. Want to avoid spreading faulty information. --Gregturn 19:20, 23 March 2006 (UTC)
Anyone know what the performance hit is if one uses both channels of a PATA cable in a RAID setup? I'm not concerned with faulty cable or controller issues, as those are easily(and cheaply) fixed. But I'm thinking, I've got a dual channel PATA controller handling 2 drives and 2 SATA drives in a RAID10 array, if I could add two more drives using the PATA controller so as to have 6 drives in total would the overall difference be a gain in speed? What would the draw backs be?--Steve Adeff 16:57, 17 May 2006 (UTC)
