Hey guys it's your favorite idiot again. This time around i'm building a SCSI server, it'll be better than having those 7 (but i'll probably end up having seven or more anyways) can't let go of the terabyte players card:D anyways. I can build everything, no problem but I can't seem to find a 400gb SCSI hard drive with a 10k RPM, but imma lookin. And have you seen the prices for those suckers, geesh. Oh anyways, anyone know where to get a 400gig SCSI harddrive that has at least a 10k RPM?

It doesn't have to be 10K, it could be 15K:-D.

Fujitsu do 15k RPM SCSI drives, but they are only 74Gb :P

I think you are going to struggle to find a 10k+ RPM SCSI over 300Gb.

Could you not just have two 200Gb in RAID ? Would be faster than a single drive aswell.

I'm making a server, for archiving video, digital photography, and applications (hey i'm a pack rat what can i say). So I will not be using a single hard drive as I could fill that with pictures alone. I'll be using a SCSI RAID to array multiple hard drives, which will also be on a network. But I'm cisco certified i can handle the networking:-D. *mumbles*I could handle the building too if someone made a 10k 400gb scsi hard drive.

I have never seen a 10k 400 gig, so I think you might be SOL on that, biggest I have ever found was somewhere around 300 -350, can't remember exactly.

The 400GB 10k are a newer build that came out in around may-june 2005

Key words in bold :D

Seeing as they are so new you may have to wait a few months before they become commercially available.

I'll take that bet. In fact, I'll wager my next 3 years salary he won't be responding, at least not as XDUDE.

edit- I'm curious though, if this is for archiving your data, is there any reason to go with SCSI vs a SATA solution? For archiving purposes this seems more practical as you won't be accessing the data very often and the drives are significantly less expensive per Gb. If you need to work on the data you could always have a smaller SCSI drive setup that you could copy to. Or perhaps I misunderstand what you mean by archive...

Well I'll like be accessing it frequently since I download like a mad man, which is why i need so much space. I probably download a good 300meg a day, on a dial up connection no less lol. But yea my main cpu uses SATA and it works fine, but i've heard that SCSI is more reliable. I love my data as if it were my own kids.

I have never seen a 10k 400gb drive yet

But i would go with the idea of having 2 200gb in raid i have heard iits a bit faster.
would that be more expensive or what ?

Which is why I refrained from responding a second time yesterday. He's gone now, I'm not going to roast someone who can't defend themselves.

I did do some checking yesterday and couldn't find any 10k 400gb drives, largest was 300gb. I think for your purposes though SATA would be plenty fast and if their in raid, even if one fails (highly unlikely for many years) you will more than likely be able to recover from it without any data loss.

If your in need of hardcore storage space I would go with an external storage solution. I've seen 500GB & 1TB systems. If you fill up 1TB, I'd be very, very impressed.

That would be one HECK of a porn collection! :lol:

I've done that. It was called college. The webcam was hidden under my Lacrosse helmet. :twisted:
