Return to SCSI (thing)


SCSI is a type of [interface] for [peripherals]. Most [modern] SCSI devices are much [speed]ier than their [USB], [FireWire], or [IDE] [equivalent]s. But SCSI is not only [beneficial] for its [speed], but also its much reduced [dependence] on the main [CPU]. For operations like [CD Burning], this is a [godsend]. The number of [coaster]s produced is much, much smaller when compared with an equivalent [IDE] or [FireWire] [CD-R] drive. And then [Plextor] introduced [BurnProof] technology. But still, if you like having a useable system while burning something SCSI is a better way to go. In recent times, though, I can't recommend it for anything more than that. A 12X SCSI burner just doesn't compare with a 40X IDE burner.

I was [amazed] and [stunned] that E2 had very little in the way of biased SCSI brain washing nodes, so I [took it upon myself] to take care of this. Please enjoy, won't you?:

Please note that all iterations of SCSI have to be properly terminated.

SCSI is also, like all wiring, susceptable to [EMF] and [Magnetic Flux] interference. Because of this, new ways to shield the precious wiring have been developed and popularized. These include ThermoPlastic Elastomer and [Teflon], which is also labeled as FEP (Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene). All SCSI cabling has maximum length limits, which depend on the version used (feel free to explore the nodes above for specifics). Cabling can be custom-made and may be fairly expensive, especially the afforementioned [Teflon]. In general, [people report] up to a 10-20% gain in [throughput] when using [high-quality] cabling.
