I used to had tons of ahci errors in my 4 disk raidz1 worth of
HD154UIs when the rig was built a year ago or so (with 8.0 Release),
but they dissapeared after tuning ZFS.
Sadly i also got a new timeout days ago followed with smartcl erros i
still keep unchecked but i guess they cold be legit, i still have to
test/swap cables and give it a try.
@Alexander: Where did you got the info about those drives being 4K?

Regarding the drives themselves i really expected more throughput,
funnily i tend to get faster writes than sequential reads with samba
(40Mb/s vs 30ish Mb/s under a Gb link) and i'm really waiting for the
prices to settle to try another ones.
