Many people have made the switch from PATA to SATA and are never looking back, especially for RAID systems. Smaller cables, no more master/slave worries, greater data transfer rates... what's not to love? In this review, I'll do a quick comparison of my new 120GB Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 SATA HDD to one of my 80GB Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 PATA HDDs.
