Chapter 40. Replacing, Upgrading, or Add... > Alternative to IDE and SCSI Drives

Alternative to IDE and SCSI Drives

It used to be that your only choices for upgrading or adding a hard disk were IDE or SCSI devices. Now there is a third choice: FireWire. LaCie (at www.lacie.com) manufactures an external FireWire hard disk drive that is said to perform as well as most IDE and SCSI drives. The LaCie FireWire hard disk drive (see Figure 40.8) is sold as an external drive, which means that all you do to install it is plug in the cable from the hard disk to the FireWire card in your PC, the same way you would plug in an external SCSI drive to your PC.
