I can testify that the EARS/EADS drives can be troublesome (see my
recent threads on the list).  I also found out that apparently the
flooding in Thailand is delaying all drive vendors' enterprise drives--
they seem to be one of the few factories that make an essential part,
and their factories are all underwater.

Have others had success with mdraid and the Deskstar drives?  I wouldn't
mind saving a little money if the drives will actually work, especially
if I can get them in before April (the earliest one vendor thinks
they might be able to start building drives again).
