Pros: Fan was dead on arrival. Called tech support to see if maybe it was heat sensor activated. Tech support said yes. Asked for documentation to support that, they didn't have any. Fan was just not working. Had to send it back after loading all my data. This drive was to replace another Buffalo drive that had a fan failure.
Cons: FAN DOA, Tech support lied.

Pros: I rarely write reviews, but this drive deserves one - it's sweet. I added a USB 3.0 card to my rig and hooked this up. The raid set up software works without flaw, the drive is cool, quiet, and looks great. I'm using it to capture video and set it up with Raid 0. I'll get a second and set that one with Raid 1 to store the captures.
Other Thoughts: Be sure to reformat to NTFS. The drive comes FAT formatted.
