Pronunciation of SATA. Say-Tuh or Suh-Tuh ???


Hi guys,

Im goin to my local bestbuy to get a new SATA hard drive and just wanted to make sure I don't make a clown out of myself, please let me know which is the right pronunciation.
Is it Say-tuh or Suh-tuh?
If you have an even more sophisticated way of pronuncing it, please feel free.

I just say S-A-T-A like P-A-T-A. Of course SCSI is pronounced "Scuzzy" lol!

If its going to be pronounced, should it not be Sattah? As in Matta?
