He did mention 4.7GB finder burn times "Mediastation 11 min./ Superdrive 22:43".
The chart (table) shows the marginal speed difference between the 2 interfaces, but how about compared to other brands?
It's hard to make a buying decision when you only compare what you get in the box against itself.

Unless you used a SATA to IDE converter yourself on your mac pro, your internal drives are all SATA. All MacPros are all SATA, all the time, 24/7. Apple switched over to SATA from PATA in the first generation PowerMac G5 Towers over five years ago.

All Mac Pros have SATA ports available for optical drives, Apple just didn't use them.
Hate to break this to you, but we're talking about optical drives here, not hard drives.
Only the newest model Mac Pros with the Nehalem architecture use a SATA optical drive. Previous Mac Pros had unused SATA ports available for optical drives, but shipped with ATAPI (IDE) optical drives.
PowerMac G5s all had ATAPI optical drives and no SATA ports except for the hard drives.
Just clarifying for everyone.
