This is the most useful data I know when selecting a storage unit. Backblaze regularly release data on failure rates for their disks at their data centres. Have a look:

I have issues with them since you are testing in a totally different environment putting dozens (maybe hundreds) of drives sitting in racks that are designed for desktop use and wondering why they fail in a data center environment.  Though it is a pain in the ass to do any sort of reliability testing in a home NAS or internally inside a desktop PC.
