Hey Christian,

It could be a combination of things: Could be the chassis. Is it a 6 GB/s chassis? Does the chassis have an expander? How long are the cables? As far as I can tell by the part number of the drive, that is a desktop level drive, meaning they aren't really meant to be built into a RAID, not saying it can't but Ultrastar level drives are what are recommended for RAID use. In our office we only use Hitachi as of right now they have the least failure rate and provide good speed as well.

You might also want to check under your ATTO Config Tool, look under your localhost tab and highlight Channel 1 under your ExpressSAS R680. Then select NVRAM at the top. What are your Device Wait Time and Device Wait Count set at?
