Weighed my options again and decided that going for four new CMR disks is better for peace of mind, so upgraded to 4x Toshiba X300. Going to consume more power but should be much more performant.

It seems that the 32" model is troubled, but 27" is just fine. Had one for a while now, loving it and would buy it over the suggested LG hands down, but the curve isn't for everyone.
