No. NON-recoverable read error rate: 1 per 10^14 bits.

And this is for light desktop use. Heavy IO on the disk may increase
failure rate. At least this is written in the technical data sheet of
the drive. WD drives are not that much better: 1 per 10^15 bits.

For sure: High end SAS drives have better numbers. But they cost much
more EUR / GB and require a SAS adapter...
