I just got 10x (2x 5pk listing same vendor has as OP); so, I'll check mine as well over the next week.

Apparently I previously bought a single 5x batch from this vender last year (Aug or so) as a Best Offer for $450. I just clicked, "Ordered Again." Those are still going strong.

Truenas 12-U7 | Supermicro X9DRD-7lN4F in a CSE-825TQ-R740LPBB. (2) Xeon E5-2630 64GB Ram.
Using onboard SAS2.
2 pools. Tank1: 4(8tb), ashift=12, 2 vdev mirror/stripe. Tank2: 4(4tb) 512e, ashift=12, 1 vdev Z2

I'll update Truenas tonight. I'm currently swapping disks for Tank2 which is the 4 4tb drives.

The first disk I tried to replace gave me that smart error. I swapped for another, and it went without issue.
Trying to swap the second disk so far 2 disks in a row with smart failures.

No issues with the hardware prior to this and no issue with a second system with the same hardware (Replaced 2 disk on that one so far).

SMARTCTL -a?
All three drives have the same seek error rate too high.
No smart errors reported prior to resilvering.

All looks good to me. I'd swap cables next just to eliminate those.

Yep, I'll give that a shot.
In the meantime, I'll also go through a full burn-in test (smart short/long tests and bad blocks) on these drives on a separate system just to be sure.

Thanks

All 10 drives I received were manufactured Dec 23rd, 2017 (yep, all in the same batch!).

One of the drives is DOA. It's so dead, that when I plugged it in, it killed my LSI 3008 HBA - to where only a complete power off and pulling the power cord got it working again. I've never seen such a thing.

Another drive is disappearing under Linux, and showing up again. Doesn't seem to be consistent.

And a 3rd drive is taking 3-5x longer to run self tests than any other drive - with long pauses of activity light on solid.

I've requested the seller replace at least these 3x drives. But, all from 2017 - and all from the same batch?
