Quote:
The current SATA standard provides significant benefits over ATA in terms of convenience, power consumption and, most importantly, performance. The main thing ATA has going for it right now is history, as it has been the standard for so long that it will not likely disappear any time soon. The future of SATA will be even more interesting as speed increases will help hard drive development keep pace with other key system components.

Definitly S-ATA.
If you have enough money go on SCSI 50% faster.

SATA is better but not that you will notice that unless you use raid.

also never ever get Maxtor :) Noicy as hell! Seagate is much better in this respect.

IF your mainboard support, sata with NCQ(native command queuing) can be much faster than any ATA ones.
