Okay, after Ralf's message I found this newsgroup post:;

You should be aware that currently
Maxtor Maxline III's(7v300F0's) do not work properly due to a firmware
bug. The current version shipping is VA111630, an update is available to
VA111670 which merely reduces the frequency of timeouts that get the drive
kicked out from the array.

I'm running 680 now, and the 15 drives have been up for something like two months or so without issues at all.. Seems like the firmware fixes the problem.
