Yes, you should worry about data corruption. Because, Have you noticed that these errors occurs at reading only? cause the writing speed is acceptable for the controller but data reading is done more frecuently. Most files are already stored in the hdd so you should worry about non saved files and work.

is built onto the board. I am currently working on picking a good
one. Don't need RAID though, I plan to implement that using GEOM
Any opinions on if I should worry about corruption with those
occasional messages till then?
