The Caviar blacks are NOT recommended/warranted for RAID (according to WD)

For RAID they recommend ONLY the enterprise line of their HDD's.

PS: I have 2 of the 1TB Cavair blacks (not raid).

I have always strenuously supported the right of every man to his own opinion, however different that opinion might be to mine. He who denies another this right makes a slave of himself to his present opinion, because he precludes himself the right of changing it. Thomas Paine (1737-1809), The Age of Reason, 1783
