We use WD RE3 750s and 500s in a number of raid systems. Compared to other brands, the WD RE3s have been the most dependable. We do occasionally have a drive go bad, but with over 70 drives installed, that is bound to happen. We run raid 6, which will tolerate two failed drives. Typically if a drive dies it is only one at a time. HOWEVER, we did lose a fan in a computer once that cause over heating and we did lose two drives, so it can happen.
The RE3s are for heavy duty (think continuous 24x7x365 use) and/or raid use. If your needs don't fit that description, you may be better off with the a WD Caviar or similar.
