Pros: You know what to expect here... bought this as a secondary drive for my system. Primarily purchased this because of the 24/7 reliability and such, and since I leave my system running as such with Folding@Home going normally.
Cons: The drive has a somewhat slow initial spin up of 1-3 seconds, which is somewhat odd... but given the size of the drive and what it is I assume that to be the reason. After spinup it works at proper speeds, just that idle-running phase that it lags some.
One star away simply because of that initial spin up lag, otherwise it's fine.
Other Thoughts: I can hear this thing spin up and click over my case fans and other hard drives... I find it comical though at just how loud the spin up is on start. Though the 'loud' isn't obnoxious, just a high pitch whine and then silence.
