    ok, the same bad experience ...

    Do you have more details about your defective HDDs? RE3 or RE4? WD1002FBYS-01A6B0 or -02A6B0? What F/W - C05 or C06? Production date (2008/2009)?

    Areca support said it's a WD problem, WD said it's a Areca problem ... always the same sh..!

    Do you have experience with Seagate Constellation ES (SATA)? We try to change ...

    Most (probably all) of our failures were on RE2.
    The replacement we received from our vendors were RE3.
    I think we did`t have to replace a RE3 so far.
    (Fingers crossed)
