You seem to be right ...

For the Seagate brand, the 2 To drives i only know are :

LP series (5900 rpm) and XT series (SATA3)...

But no 7200.12 series, as far as i know...

I thought I'd post my findings.. after having my 8 drive RAID 5 array screwed up I did a heap of tests to try and track down the culprit drive. I've been slowly building up a raid5 array of 1TB WD Greenpower drives. Started with a handful of EACS and EADS drives.
One of the EADS drives failed and I got given an EARS as a replacement - I also bought another EARS drive to fill the array at the time and wish I hadn't now.
The Perc5 raid controller didn't report any issues and says everything was fine, but I started noticing glitches all through my data - pictures would have stripes through them, sound on videos would pop and fuzz, etc. A couple of my virtual machine's hdd's got screwed up and I ended up losing the lot because it was just corrupted all the way through.

I formatted and started again.. then started experimenting with different combinations. I hadn't realised that the EARS drives were different to start with - then read up and realised they had 4096 cylinders. Interestingly enough if I formatted each drive as RAID0 they all seemed fine - it was only when I mixed the EARS drives in a Raid-5 array that things went screwy - ANY data I copied over would get corrupted.

Now the drives have small print that says they should be fine on any modern OS, and you only needed their WD align stuff on XP. They also said you could set a jumper on pin's 7 and 8 and you wouldn't need the XP Align - unfortunately this had no effect as far as data corruption was concerned.

I've pulled the EARS drives out now and without them my RAID-5 array is fine.
My findings are not absolutely conclusive - I mean perhaps I've just got a couple of dodgy EARS drives here, but if this is correct it seems these drives are NOT compatible with the Perc5 controllers - so if you have a nice stable raid array like I once had - I'd advice steering clear of the newer 4096 cylinder drives until this is discovered for certain!

I was going to ask about these WD green EARS drives and the Perc5. I've noticed that these drives don't play nice in my external enclosure, same sort of corruption as you noted. I also tried the jumper, but it didn't seem to do anything. The drive works fine on one of the onboard Intel SATA ports.

I wonder if Dell could fix this incompatibility with a firmware update?

i'm going to assume that you mean to say 4096 byte sectors and not cylinders? yes, 4kb sectors (vs the traditional 512byte sectors) is the new trend for future hard drives. since RAID controllers work down at the block level of the storage device, having drives with different sector sizes will certainly result in problems. the "backwards compatibility" mode *should* work, as it ensures that 512b sectors are aligned within the 4kb sectors correctly... but how a RAID controller handles that isn't exactly clear.

I doubt that Dell would make any effort to address this, as they officially only support Dell branded drives with their RAID controllers. Re-writing the firmware to work with 4kb sector drives on an old PERC 5 controller certainly doesn't seem like something worthwhile for Dell to do...
