This brings the total of 1.2TB HDDs replaced to 20 so far, a case was raised with HP because of the high number of failures, there are a couple of strange issues about these incidents, all the failed HDDs are in slot 20 as a hot spare, the controller is at 5.22, yet HP did not pick up on this, if we had received a bad batch of HDDs, the failures would be in various slots, the odds of installing every bad HDD in slot 20 are vast.

We use a very small number of HP disk. Other vendors have the same. I can't take photos (the rule: no camera, no phone - security will simply walk me out and I will have no future) which show mountains of failling HDD's in my data centers. You are talking about very high RPM here.
