There's a lot more to the difference, the drives themselves may in that
order, but consider the controllers, channels etc. Seek times, buffers,
rotational speed are surely considerations, but SATA disks are generally on
a smaller number of channels and ports than SAS drives.
Another consideration is the MTBF, HP advised me that the MTBF of a SAS disk
is 3 times greater than that of a SATA disk.
