Drives is hardly the issue - most of them are going to be seagate anyway.

My main issue with that kit is that the linux drivers are very basic, 
lack most management capabilities and fail often with obscure issues. 
And, as Peter pointed out already, they are not really exposing a proper 
scsi interface, but modeled around a really old ata stack.
