I replaced a 120Gb Samsung drive a while ago - it was just over a year old, and the others bought at the same time are still working fine over a year later. The process was pretty quick and easy, through a company called MPBP (I think).

I've kept the new drive which I had to buy as a spare. It was fairly easy (after a lot of reading here) to use dd_rescue to clone the drive but I understand that it's much more difficult if the geometry of the fresh drive is different. As drive models are replaced you may not be able to get another exactly the same if another one dies in a year or two.
