Yes, it's been fun ;-). It's worth googling any prospective disk purchase! If you search for the WD green power drives, you'll find a host of current discussions about problems with these drives in linux RAID (mostly linux based NAS boxes), very few of which are solved. Searching for Seagate, on the other hand, shows a number of firmware issues, but none of them very recent, which would suggest that the issues have been ironed out. I couldn't find much about problems with Samsung drives, suggesting that they're probably OK.
