If you are having that high a failure rate on drives that are only 6
months old, you should get your vendor to replace the drives with a
different model.  Look for a model that has a record of long life, not
just the one that is the "latest thing".

I work for a computer hardware company and sometimes the newest model is
not always the most reliable.
