All the slots are engaged? Looking for a better-quality? Then a storage controller is the solution of your problems. There are many ways to connect a drive. The most modern are IDE, SCSI, S-ATA, USB and Firewire. Serial-ATA (SATA) is the further development of the IDE-port, to which drives can be connected as with every hard disk. Check specs and prices for the interface type Ultra320 SCSI! RAID-systems, for example RAID 50 are always composed by several hard disks. The RAID-system or drives' array is necessary when desired standards of the output, of the memory capacity and the data security cannot be satisfied. Choose the best storage controller from Adaptek, ICP Vortex and HP. Read opinions and check prices about controllers online to make a better decision.
