Why not as reliable?  Specially with SATAII/300 using S.M.A.R.T. ?

If I inherited them then I could find a spot for them as long as there is
good redundancy and probably lower I/O. They're not as reliable as SCSI or
SAS. I agree with you, though. I wouldn't put them into a new server that I
was ordering.

Good luck,

How much would people trust SATA drives for their production servers?
I would tend to stick with SCSI if I had a choice but I have inherited a few
servers running with SATA drives.
Just wondering what people have experienced. I feel tho if you are going to
spend some decent money on a server doesn't make sense to scrimp on the hard
drives just to save a little $$.
