True. I use mirrors as I'm usually testing more than one drive. It makes it
faster to fill them up, I only need to copy 1 drive worth of data. If
you're only using one drive, it will work fine as well. The other test
utility mentioned on the Ultimate Boot CD also sounds interesting,
particularly if it can do multiple drives in parallel like ZFS can. It
stinks that you can't trust even brand new hardware. HDDs have been
particularly bad the past few years, even before the flood.
