I care about error rate per disk - if each disk is very likely to have a bad block at any time, as seems more likely to be the case with today's larger disks, then you start to really need RAID, block checksumming, etc, simply to avoid losing data. I believe that people are storing more and more data on a given system, and the fact that p(error on this system) is going up should be of concern.
