I don't know if that is what happened to me, but I had a file, written in
the middle of June that had checksum errors reading back in the middle of
July. "Luckily" it was just a secondary backup so I could dump the data
and re-backup but it was quite a surprise when it happened and made me
triply glad I'm paranoid enough to use ZFS.

This is a disk that I badblock'd when it went live as a low volume,
personal backup drive and shows no SMART errors and has passed an
extended SMART test in the last couple days. 

Western Digital Red (WDC WD30EFRX-68AX9N0) if it makes a difference. I
have a couple other REDs (in other computers) that haven't shown any
