Pros:

2 TB Storage
Fast
Easy setup
Great warranty and replacement

Cons:

THEY DIE!!! I bought two of these, set up RAID to mirror them. The #1 died after 4.5 months and was quickly replaced by #3 (#2 was still chugging along, keeping my data safe).
#3 then died then died 10 months later. During the 3 weeks when I was without the second drive, #2 died and I lost all my data.

Other Thoughts:

I bought these knowing that the aptly nicknamed "Death Stars" are high-risk drives that are good bargains for the price. Thought I was mostly safe using mirrored RAID. I still think this okay to use but you better have stuff triply backed up, and at that point, you don't save any money when you have to buy so many of these drives. The warranty and replacement is great, but so far I have had drives die at 4.5 months, 10 months, and 15 month timepoints, which really speaks terribly to using them for any time at all past the warranty expiration.
