I am well aware of how mdadm handles drive failures and how to monitor
the array's and drives' health. Believe me, they're fine as far as I
can tell. And as I've written, iostat shows all drives in the array
with similar performance measures.

Although I am a believe in the old adage "Never buy anything from the
back of the truck or from a man out of breath," the fantastic price
came from a CompUSA sale. The drives were sealed retail models.
