SCSI is faster, has more ability to expand than IDE.

Depending on what you are comparing - I'll take hard drives for example.
IDE hard drives are limited to the IDE ports on the motherboard - usually two. That means for the two ports on a twopin ribbon cable you could have two hard drives on each IDE cable. However, it limits the other devices, like CDrom or DVD.
SCSI cables have the ability to expand to (I think) it's 7 hard drives on one cable giving you greater flexibility of expansion.

Hope this helps.

Doesn't cover ATA 100/133 but just increment it to 100MBs/133MBs burst speeds.
