Pros:

Large dual fans; a pivoting foot; screwless drive installation USB 3.0/2.0 cable (6')

Cons:

plastic construction; pivot foot is iffy/flimsy; no internal power supply (wall wart...)

Other Thoughts:

I needed a drive i thought would extend the life of my 2TB backup and since heat is a drive-killer, dual fans seemed like they might do the trick.
The thing is very quiet. Even with both fans on and drive backing up. Theres rubber on the connecting surfaces and more provided in the box. No rattle. I can only tell the huge fans are on because they're blowing.
The blue fan backlighting is goofy -- fortunately there's a slider switch on the back that turns it off. I haven't used USB 3.0 yet as i have a Mac which does not; however, what i didn't know is that the port is compatible with USB 2.0 and the provided 3.0 cable plugged right into my USB hub and backed up and behaved as my other drives do. The blue status light on the front is a nice touch.
Drive installation was easy. You just slide the drive into the internal SATA connector and snap two rubber siderails into the holes provided for the screw holes on the drive and keep it held firm. Make it metal and get another star!
