RAIDFrame and desktop drives; GreenPower

Aloha.  What's the list wisdom on using standard desktop drives in a RAID in 
general, and with RAIDFrame in particular?  Is WD's TLER (Time-limited error 
recovery) just marketing? Is RAIDFrame's error timeout configurable?

Quote from WD site:
RAID-specific, time-limited error recovery (TLER) -
Significantly reduces drive fallout caused by the extended hard drive
error-recovery processes common to desktop drives.

Also, has anyone tried out the new GreenPower Caviar drives?  How are they?  Do 
they run cool?  Are they fast?  Are they quiet?
