Feizhou:  Yes, I did not see that. If the MTBF's are the same, then the
Performance specs you provided are what one needs to go with, when choosing
components. If Google has posted Failure rates, for the drives they use, that 
would be more meaningful than MTBF by the drive manufacturer, for that
particular drive model.

Questions: Is it your belief that all PATA/SATA/SCSI drives made by one
manufacturer have the same MTBF? (I find that hard to believe. However,
that might be the case.....) Also, is it your belief that these drives,
made by different manufacturers, all have the same MTBF?

>Who says? You? I like to have an online offsite RAID backup server. Is 

No. Obviously, there is no one true way of backup. Everyone's needs are different.
Your online off site RAID backup server is one way. Backups *must* be
off site, in the event of a catastrophic problem.

Thank you, for sharing your time and knowledge with the list! Lanny
