[mythtv-users] OT: Predicted hard drive failure; replacement consideration

So my wife txt'd me that our MythTV was displaying an error.
Apparently one of my two recording drives is about to fail according
to S.M.A.R.T.  (http://db.tt/HloTiIvB)

Has anyone had any experience with this drive?  Using it mostly for
Myth recordings and other media storage.

This is only my second drive failure since beginning with MythTV in
2007.  I'd like to take this "opportunity" to increase capacity again
but would really like to keep the price as close to $150 as possible.
I'm looking to order very quickly to get it installed this weekend
(hopefully before complete failure).

Sorry about the list noise and thanks for any pointers or advice.
