I've heard this before. Usually recommended if you run RAID arrays or other large harddrive pools.
If you were to get drives from the same batch(say 1 and 2), if there is a flaw in one there is likely to be flaws in the other.
You just take your chances. The joys of technology.P.S Don't ever buy optical cable from name-brand stores. 30 bucks for a 6 footer. Ha 20 bucks for a 25 footer online.

Thats scary, and good advice. I was planning to build a 4-disk RAID5 with Maxtor drives in the near future, and would have probably bought them all at once. Thanks for the info.
