No such luck.  After about three months of use, performance suddenly degrades, and the journals begin to corrupt.  A few days later, I/O errors crop up, and the drive is pretty much useless.

I've had good luck recently with seagate drives, and a lot of people
recommend the Maxtor Quickview drives.  The quickviews are made to be
used with a pvr.

I probably still have a few gmail invites.
Drop me a line (off list) if you'd like an account.
