Pros: Affordable storage, fast eSATA connection
Other Thoughts: This external drive tends to run hot more often than not. Makes me fear that it will be failing soon. I turn the power off when my desktop is off, and ran a small fan on it to keep it cool, which seems to be working for now. When it's too hot, it won't mount when the desktop powers on. POST recognizes that there's something powered connected to an eSATA port, but won't see the drive. Going to get a new drive to back this one up just to be safe.

Pros: I plugged it in. It turned on. I put files on it. They are still there. Not much to say about it, besides that it does exactly what it is supposed to do. I run my development VMs off of it over eSATA.
Cons: I sometimes have to power cycle it for Win7 to see it after a reboot. Not a big deal, and is probably a Windows problem. Vibrates a bit more than I would like.
Other Thoughts: Pretty good buy.
