This review is from: WD WD RE4 WD2003FYYS-02W0B0 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
Pros: I'm just a home user with no tolerance for hard drive outages. After I had to stop using my motherboard's RAID features when I switched by root drive to an SSD, I bought a 3ware RAID controller and backed it with two of these in RAID 1. I can't be bothered to benchmark them but performance seems respectable and the entire configuration has worked without a hitch since day 1.
Cons: You do pay a price premium for RAID edition drives, but if you need them, it's worth it.
