FWIW, we use mostly consumer-grade drives at work. When we have one drop out of an array, we put it through the manufacturer's diagnostics and, if everything checks out, label it "for desktop use only" and stick it in our small pile of spare drives on the assumption that the drive just went into deep-recovery mode on one bad sector and is otherwise in reasonable shape for non-RAID use.
