That's why you'll see over 1 million page hits if you do something like search for "load cycle count green" (without the quotes) as mentioned in my previous posts.

I get 153,000 hits for "Jim Cockfield sheep."  This isn't meaningful data.

From my perspective, the bigger issue is premature problems with WD Green drives due to the way their firmware handles sector read errors and reallocation of bad sectors to spares.

This is a suspicion you have, but I'm not convinced by your proof of such.

sector remapping is much more behind the curtain - and there is a limit to spares.  Once exceeded, it's not worth remapping - the ship is sinking.
