Pros:

It's a Seagate...however...I'm not sure that's going to remain a "pro" judging by my recent experience.

I love Seagate. They make great drives and give FANTASTIC support through the warranty period of the drive...HOWEVER, with this particular drive I have four of them in a RAID5 array and ordered another for a friend's computer, so five drives in all. Two went bad out of these five and were replaced which makes two bad out of seven. That's a 29% failure rate...even giving credit for the two replaced ones (only fair in my opinion). That's abysmal.

Cons:

I'm not sure what's going on with Seagate. I think they acquired Maxtor...which may have brought their quality down some. Step it up, gents...I don't want to have to switch brands.

Other Thoughts:

I love Seagate...but this most recent drive didn't even power up. That's a tad annoying on a build to be all excited and then have your hard drive be cruddy. I was pretty angry...AND I had to pay to ship it to them? That's a load of malarky.

I'd recommend waiting on buying from Seagate to see if their quality control improves any. My upgrade to a 500GB PS3 will wait until I see more reviews of Seagate products.
