I am considering purchasing a Pentium 120 Mz machine for text retrieval
research. I would like to include an internal 9GB SCSI drive. The
research is pretty disk intensive and thus I need a fast drive. I have
read a number of messages posted on SCSI controllers but would still
like your opinions on the following issues:
1) Does a wide controller (say AHA2940W) offer significant speed
improvements over a non-wide controller (say AHA2940)?
I think some one on this group recently suggested otherwise. But I am
not sure I understood the argument provided.
2) Is the 9GB size going to create any special iproblems during
3) Is there any problem about large capacity drives (internal) crashing
more frequently than external ones?
Thank you for your response. I am trying to be as prepared as possible
for this purchase.
