My 2 disks (of 4 disks) on raid 5 crashed in one night.

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.

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.
