I have currently failed 2 of 15 that we have in service in a RAID 6. 
The first return selecting the 2 day option (costing $20) took 6 days. 
The second time that we failed one, my boss bought another one from 
Newegg just so we would have an extra on hand.  It arrived the next day 
with Free shipping.

All drives were updated to the firmware Seagate says should work before 
being put into service.
