Sata controller failure and hard drive failure are two different things.... Care to explain what you're trying to claim here?

Some people use almost every port on their motherboard because of RAID. Using only 2 ports is not an option.

Not everyone has a NAS or file server.

15 percent chance of losing is what cost me $5000 on one hand at a casino playing poker.

Over 2-3 years... Has it even been 6 months yet? If you're one of the 5-15% people, you still won't even notice anything wrong for a long time.

People jumping to conclusions...

"Intel has shipped around 8 million 6-series chipsets since the launch at CES." Source I don't know how many of those are B-steppings P6 chips... but that's a pretty darn big number.

2-3 years of average use. Since when are we average users? Most of us game, watch movies off drives, and so on. So that time is cut a bit quicker for us one should think.

The official release date for SB was January 9th. It's Feb 2nd now, it's not even been one month for most users.

Hey, I'm not saying it's not detectable with software monitoring it. I'm just saying at this point you're not going to notice it yourself.
BTW, gaming is hardly intensive on a HD. Torrenting/Databases will likely shows signs earlier.

I was under the impression it was very chipset, and they would get a 5-15% reduction?
