Ah, certainly. Must be true if the heads aren't parked at all. Is that
what that firmware does, or does it just slow down how often it's

That's what I remembered also but the number I posted in replying to
Jouni was 269117 and the Power On Hours counter currently says 7535
which is 313 days or around 10 months.
269117 / 7535 is about 35/hour or roughly 2 minutes.
I'm running Gentoo and have no recollection of making any changes or
ever finding a setting that slowed it down significantly but I admit I
didn't try very hard. I'm just doing backups and figured I'd swap in
another drive when it gets up too high.
I have a bunch of these drives never opened as I couldn't return them,
it was too late, and I never used them so far.
