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.
