Because SCSI-disk turn faster their access-time is smaller. Their
data-transfer-rate is not bigger, though.

There is no technical reason for this, it is simply caused by the fact
that manufacturers position scsi as high-end server product. There
are disks with "SCSI-type" hardware (10000RPM) and IDE interface (WD
raptor) but they are not cheaper than equivalent SCSI ones.
