Promise FastTrak RAID + Western Digital = Failure?

I just had a 200GB Western Digital WD2000JB-00DUA0 fail after being connected to a Promise FastTrak 100 RAID card for only a year and a half. Luckily, it was running RAID 1, so I didn't lose any data. I have a friend who is also using a 2-channel Promise RAID card, and he has lost two WD2000JB drives within the last year and a half.

Are these cards cursed or something? Losing three drives between two cards in less than 2 years is pretty bad.
