Confirm comment report request

When buying hard discs for a RAID, try to avoid using drives that all come from the same batch. We had a drive fail (Maxtor) and within a day, the other half of the mirrored RAID died (also a Maxtor). They were bought at the same time from the same supplier.

I can't vouch for Maxtors but I can vouch for remote backup procedures.
