I think what you mean to ask is "Is the HD7K3000 a piece of junk?" Because
any disk which is lying about its physical sectors is a piece of junk,
regardless of what filesystem is going to be on it.
This isn't a ZFS question. (Nothing wrong with asking - I'm not trying to
discourage having the discussion, but please don't associate such problems
with ZFS as if ZFS is unique in that way.)
