well, you mean on RAID5 then, coz there's probably no math in
reconstructing a RAID1.
Why would the math on SATA be less reliable than on SCSI???
Where d'you read that anyway??

.Especially on SATA as the non-recoverable-bit-error math is so much
easier to run into.
I think..that on a 500G drive, there are enough bits to read/write
that mathematically you could run into a double-drive failure every
time you have to recover. Although, statistically it wouldnt happen
No raid solves any backup problem.
I've been using those Intel RAID with Windows for a couple of years now and
it really helped solve my backup problem.
I think this is simply great, no worries of data loss anymore (at least
coming from hardware failure).
