SATA is the fastest of the three, the transfer rates starts at 150kbps where as PATA is around 100kbps. SATAs are hot swappable and don't required to be set as master and slave when two or more are used.

Absolutely, being hot swappable is a plus with these drives. If you are running them in RAID5 they would be hot swappable anyway though.
