Not sure what to awnser here, I can tell you though that 270MB/sec or even 200MB/sec is not attainable with a single drive. So I am not sure which specs you are looking at, but they do not sound realistic.

About the reliability I am also not sure what to say. WD's are good, but Samsung's are not supposed to be bad. Currently having some trouble with my raid set, but I have other Samsungs which show no problems whatsoever.
