Why are LTO autoloaders significantly more expensive with SCSI interface vs SAS?

I was looking at prices on an HP LTO 4 Autoloader (HP), and the one with the SCSI LVD/SE interface is nearly $1000 more than the one with the SAS interface. Is there a reason for this?

We already have one LTO 3 autoloader with the SCSI interface, is it a bad idea to have one autoloader on SCSI and one on SAS on the same backup server, or is it best to have them both on SCSI?
