Hi All,

I have two Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1 TB (ST31000528AS) drives in a
Linux software RAID-1 configuration. Today I've got a notification from
smartd that one of the drives (sda) is failing:

Well, IMHO, it's because it's a Seagate. Ever since Seagate
purchased Maxtor, the quality has gone WAY downhill.

With that said, you might want to investigate flashing
the drive firmware. But IMHO, you'll be better off with
a WD drive or even a Hitachi drive today.

YMMV.

Second the Hitachi, no error even after 8413 hours of continuous use!
