Nice, but Thick
This review is from: Seagate Constellation.2 ST9500622NS 500GB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Enterprise Hard Drive Bare Drive
Pros: This is a fast hard drive, with built-in encryption (a nice plus) and enterprise-grade reliability and build. It should last a long time.
Cons: This is an enterprise drive, meant for servers, SAN's, and NAS'. That means it is thick. About 2x thicker than my laptop's current HDD. So, regrettably, I will be sending this back. I am guessing it to be in the 19mm range for thickness. Keep that in mind when you are looking at this otherwise awesome drive. If you don't have a server (or a chassis that can hold a server-class HDD), then look elsewhere.
Other Thoughts: This is a good drive for servers
