we've always found that firmware revisions on the disks make a bigger
difference than filesystem type. Disks are going to fail whatever you do. Plan
for it and move on. Plus disks are cheap. You are going to be better off
picking the filesystem that gives you the best performance for your particular
usage than worrying about whether it is going to wear out your disks.
