It imported and handled the ZEVO pool whiteout any noticeable problems.
I'm in the process of backing up the critical data and then I will juggle 
the drives around a little bit to create a completely new pool with Open 
The only problem I have is one of my Barracudas stopped working on SATA 3

I have another question though.

only pictures, highly compressed videos and mp3's on it, right?
I have a hexa core Xeon X5680 running at 4,1 GHz so processing power is not 
a problem though.
