Thanks everyone for the responses.
I like the idea of the USB for ease of portability but really want the
higher throughput that SATA and eSATA offer, especially since the
drive(s) will be used for business and low end gaming. I already have
an USB external hd for backup, and it has saved my bacon a few times
already. I can say that if money were water I would be getting one of
those 4 bay external storage towers I've seen advertised by Addonics
and put several eSATA drives and a DVD device in it, but I'm not there
yet. At the moment, I think I'll probably get an internal SATA drive
knowing that when the budget allows I can buy an external storage tower
and move hd's and optical drives to it. As another poster pointed out,
heat is an electronics killer, and my ultimate goal is to move those
type of devices into their own enclosure away from my cpu.
I expect that whatever I buy will stay with me for quite some time, as
in years. Heck, my oldest pc had Seagate Barracuda SCSI's that only
recently started giving me problems after 10 years :-)
