Just had one of these drives fail in an array on our main backup server. We figured that the server might be a bit unreliable, so we bought 4 more of these drives to configure in another fail over backup server. I just gave my boss a heads up about the 8 ticking time bombs now residing in our backup array.

If only I had seen this article a week ago.
