My gut feeling is that this is a hardware issue. Since you've tried
different systems, that would seem to rule them out.
Have you tried different USB enclosures/cables/etc? I'm never comfortable
running disks over USB.
Are you able to try ZFS? It inherently checksums data and should quickly
show up any hardware issues.
