 I've got a couple running in a FreeNAS server box which is now showing
an up time of 118 days. Mind you, it does rather help that they don't
suffer temperature cycling on a daily basis. They're running about 9 deg
C above ambient so don't suffer any thermal stress to speak of so I
don't expect trouble with _any_ make of drive in this situation.
