I have a RAID-5 comprised entirely of Maxtor drives of the same
model. One failed about two months ago, taking my XFS fs with it
(existing data survived, but I had to rebuild the fs). Another just
failed this afternoon (no fs glitches this time). It's kind of sick,
but I'm actually hoping that the rest of my drives fail *before* the
end of the 1-year warranty period.
