Pros:

Work beautifully with LSI MegaRaid 8888ELP, Intel ICH10R, and USB-SATA adapters. Very cool, quiet, and use much less power than my previous 1.5TB 7200rpm drives while providing better performance overall.

Cons:

Had serious issues with some Marvell based controllers unless the drive's on-board cache was disabled. (tried rr622 and a few others including my motherboards eSATA controller)
I was experiencing constant stuttering, timeouts, etc... With the on-board cache disabled the drives were reliable enough, but performance was still exceptionally bad.

Other Thoughts:

I have 16 of these drives, and aside from having to update the drive firmware none of them have had any serious issues so far. Only time will tell, but they seem much more reliable than the other 2TB drives available.

If anyone is wondering, the firmware updater is able to do many drives at once without issue. The whole process only took a few minutes.
