Re: confused. PERC5+SATA, no interposer

If you look at the matrix on the Intel doc, many of the features affect reliability too ... error recovery and other SAS settings that SATA drives do not have.  Another thing that addresses reliability is Dell's warranty ... SATA drives, unless you purchase an extended warranty to cover SATA, is only 1 year, where the SAS drives are covered for the term of the server's warranty, up to 5 years.
