My 300Gb 10,000rpm Velociraptors have died in droves. I have 5 of them, 2 in RAID 1, 2 in RAID 0, and a spare. I have replaced 8 drives over the last 1.5 years. That's right some have been replaced twice! The MTBF numbers are very misleading. What I don't understand is how I have had computers that lasted 6-10 years as hand me downs when I'm done with them on cheap consumer drives and all the "server" drives fail after so little time.
