Yeah, you can call it bad luck, but when MacWorld etc test the drives, what do they test? Read/Write speed, Peak/RMS transfer rates, but they never test for durability, and endurance. I've got a SansDigital 2 drive case on my desk I use for archiving that has been turned on for over a year now, 10 hours a day 5 days a week, and I haven't had a drive (or the case) go bad yet. But, it has a big fat fan in the back, and the case NEVER gets hot. I am a real skeptic when it comes to "Fanless heat dissipating case designs" I'm not a student of thermodynamics, but I think you need more than the 2 long sides of the drive to be touching a piece of finned aluminum to dissppiate the heat of a drive working hard.

Need a Raid, Need a Raid, Need a Raid.

Say that 5 times fast, then go get one.

Good luck!!
