Is it normal for your hard drive to fail after 4 and a half years of everyday use?

Normal? No. Possible? Sure.

I have 8 Seagate drives. six 1TB and two 1.5 TB drives on an Areca controller in my PC and they have been happily humming along for 5 years. I checked them last week (looked at S.M.A.R.T. data) and they are fine, no errors of any kind at all.

Go to the manufacturer's website and download their diagnostic software and check your drives.
For Seagate -> http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=SeaTools&vgnextoid=720bd20cacdec010VgnVCM100000dd04090aRCRD

Hard drives, being of a mechanical nature, can fail at anytime. It behooves you to buy drives that have a decent (5 yr) warranty) to protect your data. Usually they do not fail catastrophically, but rather wear out slowly, progressively. This is why drive mfrs have adopted S.M.A.R.T. data tracking software to monitor your drives. You can learn more about S.M.A.R.T. here -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S.M.A.R.T.
