Faith-based IT? ;)

I'm willing to believe that some SCSI drives are more reliable than  
some SATA drives.  But a lot of mid-range SCSI drives share the same  
mechanics as mid-range SATA drives from the same model line, and I  
have a hard time believing there's any reliability difference in  
those cases.  Even those of us buying SCSI for home use aren't going  
to be buying the kind of 15K RPM server disks that would have  
different mechanical parts than SATA models.
