Yes, they die too soon.

I just added a highly-rated Samsung to my server which while
having fewer RPM's uses new platter technology and consequently
performs on par to faster drives but is much cooler. With disks it
really pays to read the reviews.

It is also usually worth paying the extra money for server-grade drives.
(i.e. intended for 24-hour operation).
