Pros:

-Large cache
-5 year warranty!!

Cons:

-Started to have bad sectors after a year or so.

Other Thoughts:

After about a year of storing my other program folders on this hard drive (with a SSD as my boot drive) it started to get some bad sectors. It started slowing my boot up time significantly and caused boot up issues. There werent any issues if I booted up without the drive. The bad sectors kept increasing, so I started transferring as much as I could onto a 1Tb drive. Ended up getting about 500Gb when it crapped out. Accomplished a quick zeroize on the first and last million, and afterwards tried a quick format, and it failed halfway through.
RMAing this one, but havent had many issues with WD in the 8 years of using their drives. Had 16kb of bad sectors on a 500Gb WD blue drive, but zeroized it and reformatted it and it is still goin strong (as a Movie storage device, not writing anything to it anymore). Also had an old raptor fail on me about 7 yrs ago (2 years after purchase), but that's about it.
Havent had any issues with my 3 other WD drives (2 are 1Tb black) definitely recomme
