Good thing Newegg’s RMA process is great. It’s been a week now since the replacement drive came in and the RAID array seems to be in good shape. I'm still skeptical on the quality of these drives.

Funny the quality of these drives lately...had a 500gb seagate fail on me one week after replacement in a nas box...

I also run a couple of adaptec cards and other than a little bit slower boot time, they're great.

I've heard really good things about Proxmox (more features than ESXi yet still easy to use).
It might be worth giving that a try as well.

Proxmox VE is just a minimal Linux install (Debian) with KVM + OpenVZ and a web frontend. Aside the frontend, there's nothing in there that isn't GPL. In fact their own website mentions about how they're an open source virtualisation platform and talks about how their solution is designed for businesses who want to move away from vendor lock ins.

They just offer non-free support contracts (much like most enterprise Linuxes)
