That's your drive reporting that it saw transmission error on the wire.

And a write command timed out which is also often caused by transmission

Nothing was broken in any of the arrays and all seems to be functioning
now but albeit at lower speeds as you see above UDMA/100 and UDMA/133.

No, according to the log, there was no slow down. Transmission speed is
lowered only after some number of errors have accumulated.

Could there be a bug with the new Veliciraptors and the drivers in the
kernel? I never saw this happen/occur with my old raptor 150s or 74s.
Also, I stress tested all of these drives for 8hours+ and they never had
a problem before so it makes the problem rather peculiar.

For SATA drives, occasional transmission problems are expected even on
otherwise pretty healthy systems. No need to worry about it too much
unless the problem repeats itself a lot.
