Biiiiig disk

I was really happy a few months ago when I got my big shiny terabyte of disks running reliably. Compared to the real NASes that were on the market at the time it was a bargain too. But now, I want one of these. It's about half the price, tiny, a lot quieter, and faster.

My only concern is that Lacie don't document what happens if it fails. Can I just swap out the failed drive and it'll magically rebuild the RAID? Or would my data be kaput?
