Pros: Working good, more than enough power is supplied
Cons: See other thoughts
Other Thoughts: So I have the power supply and just finished assembling it. But there one thing that scares me, as soon as I started the computer the first time the power supply is supplying power but the fan only spins for a good 3 secs then it stops and after I installed all my drivers and operating systems o checked the fan If it's running but still isn't. I'm not sure if it's only moving when the power supply is really hot and does it take a while before the fan starts? Please clarify thanks you!

Exceptional Addition to Sneakernet
Pros: If you're an IT professional who needs an external drive to work faster than any have before, this is a great purchase. The cost is a bit steep, but the performance is steeper! I've been seeing transfers and writes that weren't very far off from advertised speed, which is remarkable given that USB 3.0 SSDs are allowing for external drives to do what was previously impossible even for internal mechanical SATA drives. (I haven't posted benchmarks because my USB 3.0 implementation is new enough that there might be bottlenecks elsewhere on my machine, at a driver or adapter level.)
Cons: The primary concern? This isn't for everyone. You're paying the early adopter's fee, and the average person doesn't even have USB 3.0 ports yet or a need for tens of gigabytes to transfer at lightning speeds.
Other Thoughts: I'm giving this drive 5 eggs because it does exactly what it advertises, and it does it well. And if you're in my situation--where two machines with USB 3.0 ports aren't on the same network but you still need to transfer files in the tens of gigabytes on an almost daily basis--this drive is a godsend. It will quarter your wait times or better.
