As a matter of note, we replaced one of our two WD 150 GB Velocirartors
today. It has over 70,000 operating hours on it. Pretty good for a hot
little drive turning at 10,000 rpm.

What did you replace it with? I see that Newegg still lists 10k and 15k
drives for sale, but it doesn't look like anybody is making them any
more. Done in by RAID and SSD, I guess.
