Seagate cheetah 15k RPM drives SAS to sata connector

Just out of curiosity. The Seagate cheetah is only sold with and SAS connector. Is there a convertor to connect it to SATA? I know solid state drives are faster. Honestly im just wondering.

Thanks

Which type would these hard drives be? I have used them in a storage device but never had to buy an adapter.

Thanks

A SAS drive will NOT work on a SATA connector any more than an old 9-pin VGA monitor will work on a 9-pin RS232 connector.

You need to buy a SAS controller, not a SAS->SATA converter.   Too much gets lost in the translation.  Example SAS drives are dual ported, so you not only get path redundancy, but performance benefits.  But attach a SAS drive to a SATA controller then a SATA->SAS convertor and you lose the benefits of having SAS in the first place.

What are the benefits of sas? Is it faster than sata?
