We're talking about SCSI drives, not the theoretical limits of the interface itself. SCSI itself may not be better than SATA, but that's a theoretical discussion that means nothing to webmasters if SCSI drives are faster than SATA drives. Maybe steam cars can be just as fast as gasoline cars, but if I'm looking for my next car I couldn't care less, since nobody makes them as fast as gasoline cars. There might be some unjustified price differences, but you're only guessing about them without any facts, because there are no SATA drives that spin at 15k RPM or have access times of SCSI drives or are marketed mostly to businesses.
