Well I'll let you know if mine fails before the end of the century.

I also use a 75 gig one in one of the servers here at work, for ghost images, intranet, wsus and the proxy. Its connected to a 8 year old mobo via a very good quality sata card. This drive is abused to a very high level and is very very quick.

If you are after long term reliability then you could go for Seagate ES drives which are made for server type use and are a lot more reliable. Personally I don't trust Maxtor, we got in a lot of ten computers with Maxtor drives. Within six months eight had failed hard drives.
