So are you saying that I have 5 new drives (a week old) all with the same
problems? And S.M.A.R.T doesn't show any of the issues.

I need to go play the lottery.  ;-)

I agree. Its the classic symptoms of cable, power supply noise, and/
or HD CPU going sour. I have a brand new drive here with similar
problems. And its twin from the same batch without.
