7.2k SATA is working great here....
Ive been using 15k drives since 1999. They are very quiet
and have no heat issues. Im sure some cheaper drives
may have issues but not the seagate Cheetah series.
I suppose if you use a small # of tracks 7k is fine
Once and a while I have clients with as many as 250
tracks. No Sata drive even at 15 is going to
handle it with fx. You really need scsi in some cases.
You could possibly use SATA with a bus mastering adaptec card
but in general SATA is amatuer
