There was some follow-on discussion on that thread. Constantine Murenin noted that write speed will be at the speed of the slowest drive. However, as you are using the same controller, your I/Os are in sequence. SATA may be faster than PATA, but unless I misunderstand the technology -- and I might -- only one data transfer at a time is possible on a single ATA bus.
