Why should SATA suck? Several comanies build RAIDs with ATA or SATA 
drives (e.g. Transtec). Anyway, I get three years warranty and some 
drives are said to hold that promise. A full fledged server with 
redundant power-supplies and RAID-5 SCSI costs more than 2.5k Euro. A 
cheap one less than 1k. With PCIe it should be possible to get the 
necessary I/O bandwidth.

Thanks for your comment,
