That does seem like an extraordinarily high failure rate. I have had 4 in RAID 0 since shortly after they were released without any problems. I have not seen people posting reviews noting any failures so far. I hope Intel is taking care of you on the warranty.
Can you tell us the serial numbers of failed drives?
Sent them back to NewEgg already. I have the serial numbers for the other drives in the shipment... might be from the same batch if that would be helpful.
yep if you can, please post it
We used an Adaptec 5805 and the PERC 6i
Sorry for delay
Yes it is possible that some drives came from same batch.
This is very interesting, and yet concerning, as we are about to deploy a 15 drive x25 RAID-6 array using a PERC 6/E controller.
Rjdevereux, can you clarify which RAID card the drives were connected to when they failed? Was it the Adaptec 5805, or the PERC 6i?
