then how to account for the fact that bleeding edge SCSI drives
turn at twice the rpms of bleeding edge consumer drives?

The motors spin twice as fast?

I'm pretty sure the original comment was based on drives w/ similar specs. E.g. 7200RPM "enterprise" drives versus 7200RPM "consumer" drives.

Next time one of my 7200RPM SCSIs fail, I'll take it apart and compare the insides to an older 7200RPM IDE from roughly the same era.
