So far, so good
Pros: Lots of storage. Runs cool and quiet.
Cons: Expensive per-Gb. Not the speediest drive, but ok for bulk storage.
Other Thoughts: I ordered 2 of these for a mirror in a server. Both installed and appear to be working without issue in FreeBSD. The entire space is addressable and neither have had problems yet. I got the 5400 RPM drives in the hopes that the lower speeds and cooler running would help extend the life of the drives.

Big, fast, and quiet
Pros: Huge amount of storage in small form factor. Cool and quiet. Worked well with LSI 9211-8i controller.
Cons: Cost per gigabyte is a little high, but I needed to pack 16 of these in 4U of rack space so I paid the premium price.
Other Thoughts: I ordered 18 of these and only one had a problem (was promptly replaced by HGST).
