I just realized what you said.

I'm creating a RAID 1 mirror with the SATA drives.

A RAID 0 made with used SCSI drives is asking for trouble.  To do what I
want I would need 4 of those SCSI drives.

In fact, I don't think RAID 0 is ever worth the risk, unless it is for
something where only speed matters.
