Alright, thanks for the display tip, one quick last question, it appears as
if most of my drives have a number of attributes of the Old-Age and/or
Pre-Fail types. Is this cause for concern? Only one of the drives is brand
new and none seem to have other problems (that I've experienced at least).

to see a sensible display
The drive is 22209 hours old (2.5 years) and apparently Fujitsu has designed
it for a lifetime less than this, since it's now a failed 'usage'
