I've had 3 'failures', all while doing large file transfers.
Since then , I have run the ReadyNAS's own extended disk test and run the SeaTools long drive test on all 6 drives... no problems have yet been found with _any_ of the disks.
I've done an OS reinstall at the request of the Netgear support guys and since then (touch wood) everything has been running normally... I might try doing some more large file transfers to see if I can stress the system though.
These don't feel like normal disk failures to me... feels more like a firmware / software bug in either the disks or the NAS (or the combination of the two).

Are you guys also all using OSX? I wondered if it was some sort of weird conflict with doing a file transfer and Time Machine trying to back up at the same time. I thought I observed that on my second failure earlier (was using the machine when the drive died -- other two times I wasn't in the room when I got the alert), but I can't tell if it was coincidental or not.
