I don't know the WD IDE drives, but I've had the Micropolis 2GB SCSI
drive fail once, and the replacement is making funny noises
occasionally :-(.  Too bad, because it's fast, relatively quiet, and
cool in my experience (but I'm comparing it to the old full height
Fujitsu 2266 drive and to some high spindle speed WD drives colleagues
are using).
