What do you need the raid for?
I am still running a Seagate 10k.7 and it's working great.

LK-This will be used in a Dual-opteron data server for a compute cluster
(So I need to push the Read transfer rate to ~700MBytes/s)
I forgot to add... If anyone has any SCSI HW-Raid card Suggestions/Reviews for this that'd helpful too :)
More info if needed:
LINUX I'm running 2.6.x Linux, so things must be compatible heh.
will need at least 8 drives, probably more like -> 16 -> 24 ?
System will be used as data-server storage, linked with Infiniband to a compute cluster.

I've been running the Seagate 15k Chetah drives in our servers for a couple of years now. They are really fast and reliable. I've had 3 IDE drives die in that time and not even a hiccup from the Seagates.
For controller I'm running the Adaptec 19160U. Runs great on Linux; excellent driver support for the entire family of cards.
