For audio encoding we used Lame MP3 with a 128MB WAV file and converted it to a 196k 44Hz MP3 file to determine which drive system allows faster access.
For video encoding we used Media Concept and converted The Matrix DVD over to a MPEG-4 DIVX system at 25fsp to determine the fastest drive setup.
Again, the Serial ATA based e.SATA takes out the IDE based e.SATA.
Again results speak for themselves.
