But, that's not even the main issue (although I suspect the excessive load cycles contribute to the drive problems with WD Green Models).  Sector Read errors inside of a year of use is the issue I've had with them, even though SMART data showed the firmware hadn't reallocated any bad sectors to spares (leaving them in a "pending reallocation" state instead.

IMO, that's horrible behavior, since users may not realize their disk drive is what's causing their issues until they lose important data.

You don't.  I will.   ZFS scrubbing tells me if read errors are present.  A gradual failure of this nature will be visible in advance.

Again, you're selling your personal experience as the normal expected experience, without suitable foundation to do so.
