Believe me, you're much better off with the Seagate 15k.4.  We have 4 x IBM
EXP300 storage shelfs with 14 disks each, all 15k.3, been running nonstop
since 2003 without a single failed disk.  Maxtors we replace every 6 months,
which is a shame as the Atlas 10K V's and 15K II's are very fast, they just
go belly up too quick.
