Disk drives suck less than they did a couple of years ago. Which is nice

I only buy Enterprise rated drives for my home computer.

If you don't, you're just asking for trouble.

"Enterprise" drives are designed for different usage patterns, and are likely not to perform so reliably in a "consumer" environment ... given their significantly higher price methinks you are making a false economy.

You'd do better to buy two consumer drives and run them in a RAID1 array.
