comment how long to zero a drive with dd?
My WD 1Tb (5400rpm) sata takes about 240 minutes, but it's old and has reallocated sectors. Incidentally it's not that different from the same time that smart reports as the time to expect an extended self test to last (255mins)

comment How do you make your hard drive last as long as possible?
In theory SSDs should last longer but now that MLC types have been in the field for some time people are beginning to report some amazingly high failure rates, and particularly ungraceful ones too.

Yes that's the kind of thing I was thinking about alright. There's also this impressive looking device, but I can be sure that's more than a new board. Problem with getting a new board though is that if I mange to find one that fits, and supports most of the hardware I'll lose my beautiful PCI based professional sound card. :-/
