I'm also curious if you have GP drives or GP RE (Raid Edition) drives?

This is interesting because we sell quite a few WD drives, as of late I've noticed the GP drives are become more and more common ...

Running a few test with this and different OS' just got on my TODO list ...
These are WD Caviar Green 1.5 TB drives. The desktop version.

What's really annoying is the huge jumble of drive variations that are available. Jeremy Chadwick broke it down into a nice table on one of the FreeBSD mailing lists.

We've learnt our lesson, and won't be using any drives with Green in the name from now on, regardless of the manufacturer.
