I use 3 Hard drives (HDD) for my Data storage. They are connected through USB 2.0, eSATA and SATA II. I also have a New Mobo that has SATA II and III ports. My issue is that I am wondering whether the USB 2.0 is good for my 3 hardisks or should I change it and use the Mobo although I am contented with the speed that they have. I am also considering using a PCI SATA 11 card but I think it has some compatibility issues. I need anyone’s advice on this.
What kind of port to use for 3 hard drives
You haven’t mentioned about your Motherboard bus speed. But I don’t need that because it’s very simple that if you connect directly to Motherboard then you would find the highest speed.PCI SATA 11 is not a bad option either. But you haven’t mention which you would use and in which operating system if you using windows 7 then type will run faster and if you using XP then another type will run faster. But at first you have to what type of operating system to use. But steel I would say as a technician that Motherboard option is best one and usb option is the worst one.
