My main question is about the HDs listed in Red in the first post, are they fully functional with the exception of the few that have notes indicated?
Some of the issues with EHD's are actually problems with ViP622's. I had major problems with my WD 320 until I upgraded from a 622 to a 722. I still believe the Western Digital My Book Essential drives are the most trouble free."
