As an aside to your own experiences, the links Yeechang posted DO  
contradict that point.

The quote "we observe little difference in replacement rates between  
SCSI, FC and SATA drives" is from a paper which "looked at 100,000  
drives, including HPC clusters at Los Alamos and the Pittsburgh  
Supercomputer Center, as well as several unnamed internet services  
providers". If these are not environments able to stress hard-drives,  
then I'd be interested to hear of environments that do.
