I work for a large computer company and someone in one of the storage 
design teams went out and bought a SCSI drive, an IDE drive, and a SATA 
drive, and dissected them.

The photos showed a big differentce in build quality.  Bigger bearings, 
better seals, better casing. Guess which one was better?

There is a reason why SATA RAID array "best practices" is for 2x as many 
spares per disk population, and why "dual parity" is used.
