However, I planned to add 1-2 more of them to my Mac Pro for backup reasons and then use the OS X software RAID to be on the secure side. Not a good idea?
The RAID kept breaking with a RAID integrity error. I thought one or both of the drives was bad, but they work fine individually prior to the RAID and have worked fine for years individually after I stopped using them in RAID. I still use them today.

I'm not sure what the problem is, but Googling found this:

...which mentions Greens use some sort of frequent "Intellipark" idle method that, perhaps, is bad for RAID on non-Windows operating systems.
