I wouldn't like to hot swap an IDE drive
I run compaq raid boxes and the specs are very tight on hot swap gear.
Will pluging the drive in cause too much of a power drain to the rest of the
drives in the box??
and to the power supply. Also scsi drives don't fire up straight away when
you plug them in
start delay, and other such niceties
IDE doesn't have that.
Might work for a while.....but I wouldn't use it for production machines
without a really good test
Just my thoughts
