So is the saved money worth the added (greatly added for that matter) risk of the drives being completely defective?

If there's any kind of Return Policy, I'd say go for it. If you get the drives and they're not obviously on their last legs then the seller was likely just looking for an upgrade and the drives may work fine for another 8 years. They could die tomorrow and you wouldn't have the manufacturer's warranty, but that's the chance you take.

RAID with Raptors is definitely worth it. That **** can get you like 300MB/s read. I would ask the seller some questions and see if they are a trustworthy person and if they know what they are talking about. And yeah, check the serials.
