What's the deal with those drives, anyway? Why are they so cheap? Do
they perform poorly, or something? Is there any reason *not* to go with
these drives any time I need an SCA drive for something? (I know that
they're not U320/15K or anything, but compared to other 7200RPM drives
are they much slower?)

I don't know a thing about NetApps, but could one use these drives in a
NetApp box somehow? (hence pertaining to the other discussion about
NetApps for "home use")
