Pros:

I have some previous history with this drive model, and it was quite positive. That positive impression continues with this example. The particular drive I received has not exhibited any unusual level of noise. It has functioned as expected, and is a good match, performance-wise, for the system it was installed in.

Cons:

These drives, as a class, have a reputation of running a bit "toasty." Nothing I would describe as being excessive, but not quite as cool as units of more recent design and manufacture.

They are, in my opinion, *not* a good choice if you intend to mount them in, say, close proximity of another hard disk, or within any sort of cramped enclosure. This is not a good practice with any hard disk. If you provide a reasonable air-space around the drive, and/or there is any sort of active cooling involved, (a fan), you should be fine.

As these are "multiple platter" drives, (5, in this particular case), and represent early examples of SATA 3.0Gb technology, they are probably not the ideal choice where blazing performance is paramount. They are solid units, but don't expect 2012-era numbers.

Other Thoughts:

Eyes wide-open, ladies and gentlemen. These are refurbished drives, originally produced about 5 years ago. You should recognize and accept what it is you're considering buying, and how well it suits your needs. Given my past and current experiences with the E7K500, I'm quite satisfied.
