Jim, The original comparison was between the 1280's USB vs. Parallel port. I have no idea how we got into a SCSI discussion. SCSI is still the best HD interfaced and I love it for my three scanners hooked to the same computer as well as tape drive, two CD-ROMs, in addition to several hard drives, all on one controller. I am still tryin got find out the performance of the USB port vs. the parallel port. Also, ratings vs. reality aren't always the same. I guess I could hook both up, print the same picture, and time it. I have heard of complaints people have had with high speed devices on USB due to controller limitations. Thanks!

I'd still choose USB over SCSI hands down. Big reason: it's standardized. There aren't 20 flavors of USB cables. - -Jim - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
