SATA technology advantages, compared to IDE
IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) is a standard interface between a computer motherboard data bus with disk storage. IDE interface is made based on the IBM PC Industry Standard Architecture (ISA) 16-bit bus. Interface of the IDE is the interface to storage devices that can teringrasi to disk or CD-ROM drive. Although the IDE is a general technology, most people use the term IDE, to refer to the ATA specification. While the AHCI (Advanced Host Controller Interface), a hardware mechanism that allows software to communicate with SATA. AHCI has been supported by various operating systems like Windows Vista and Linux Kernel 2.6.19.

SATA technology advantages, compared to IDE.
- Connection / installation very easy, compared to IDE.
With IDE, we need to create a "jumper setting" must be right, and rules of master-slave prosedut be true, but, with SATA, you just connect it to follow the correct port.
- SATA suitable for large-capacity hard disk read.
- SATA uses less power, compared with the IDE. That's why ATA hard drive heat faster than SATA.
- Installation of SATA is more simple and neat. Given a more spacious room in the casing, so that the air flow inside the casing better.
