Yeah, it is an interesting (olbeit old) read. It should be noted that 
10^-7 is the error rate of the *entire system*, not only from the disks 
themselves. From "RAID 5 verification":

"The second observation is the that we measured about 300 errors while 
from the
mentioned BER (Bit Error Rate) and the usage one would expect about 850
errors. As the vendor BER numbers are normally on the ‘safe’ side the
measurement is close to the expectation."
