    I just stick with Serial A.T.A. It's a bit longer, but less likely to draw puzzled glances from those not up-to-speed on recent tech. It's a shame that some acronyms are largely unpronounceable.

    SAH-TUH, but I don't think much of the choices...say-tuh or sattuh? Mine's more like "starter" without the first T and with the usual English neglect for pronouncing R's. ;)

    On a side note, one of the guys I used to work with not only pronounced, but thought the word was "starter", and there was nothing we could do to change his mind...:sigh: Starter drives and starter cables, what memories :D

    S-A-T-A or Serial A-T-A.

    It's an initialism not an acronym.

    sah-tuh all the way baby - although I use serial ATA if people don't understand
    people saying "sa-ta" do you mean the above or "sar-tar" or "say-tay" or what? :confused:

    serial ATA, and sah-tuh are the only "correct" ways imo :D
