Is it worth it?

If so, can I get the cables yet and which drives currently offer it?

Thanks.

Most of the reviews I've seen have not been overly enthusiastic, so far, but are expecting great things in the (near)future.

Scan click here have Maxtor ATA-133 drives and addon PCI cards on their today only page now .

At the moment they are only running at 150 ATA and don't even perform at that level so have no advantage other then the simpler cable.

Later serial drives will increase in speed, eventually reaching 500 ATA, it's hoped within about 4 to 5 years.

It's not really worth bothering until they either reach 200 to 300 ATA or replace IDE anyway, which will happen in due course.
