We use those on some fileservers.  The drive failure rate is pretty
low.  I've lost a couple which made me happy I was running RAID.  Before
that we were using Baracuda drives from seagate  if memory serves, those
weren't as good.

All servers we have are scsi.  Most serious disk farms are scsi.  However,
they also cost more while IDE drives are nearly as fast and cheaper as
Alan has mentioned previously.
