SCSI drive any good?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I was given these drives just now. They are 3 hp 15k scsi drives 36.4gb each. Not sure if they work or not. But my question is this, are they any good or worth trying to sell, or worth setting them up in a raid? If they are good for a raid 0 would my board be able to use them? Sata to scsi?

I can tell you one thing. They will be loud as ****. If you think Raptors are loud, these are on a whole different level. And having 3 is even worse. My dad has 2x10k rpm 74GB drives, and 4x 15k 36.4GB drives in a server in his office... It easily puts out 50db, if not more (a Sythe Ultra Kaze 3k RPM puts out 45db).

As for speed, they most certainly will be fast, and would make an excellent C:/ drive. All you really need is a SCSI card for your computer, and you're set.

SCSI RAID cards are stupid expensive, but RAID 0 15k RPM drives are wicked fast, too.

I am sure someone could use them for a server of some sort if you choose not to use them. Also, I don't know if they still do, but Macs used SCSI of some sort for a while. I know my old G3 Quicksilver had SCSI drives.

You'd have to get a SCSI card, I don't think there are any adapters that go from SCSI to SATA. If they do exist, they are probably pretty expensive; a SCSI-to-IDE adapter runs about $75.

Yep you'll need a SCSI card for those. If you don't want to go that route, you could put them on eBay, though used ones are only fetching $10-$15 each in completed listings.

A cheap Adaptec 2120S will run you at least $400 new, and other SCSI RAID cards that might work just go up in price from there.

Holly shi-.

Damn that's expensive. You could get a two far larger, and possibly faster, 300GB VRaptors for the price of that adapter. Maybe the seek times would be slower, but still.... Nearly 10x the space for the same price, it's a no-brainer.

Since they have Molex, just plug them into your current rig. If they spin up, at least that's step 1 of testing them.

This SCSI and card stuff is a whole new computer subject for me now. I did a little looking and I found this on newegg.

This would let me set up a RAID 0 with those 3 drives yeah?

LOL Yeah I guess that would work.
