I am not sure if I would like everything taking 2 to 3 times as long
to load but I guess it depends on what you use your system for. My
main mythtv system is also my main desktop at home.

You are very lucky. I find the failure rate for drives after 5 years
is over 33% at work and this is for desktops.

That is good.
