Pros:

very large drive for a reasonable price with expected performance. sustained 120 - 125 MB/s read / write (non sequential) writing 2GB files roughly 10x using AJA System Test.

Cons:

two out of the three drives arrived DOA. sounded like the head wasn't able to get out over the plates, just repeated clicking sounds. immediately packed them up and sent back to Newegg for RMA.

disappointed at the 66% failure rate but i'm assuming something drastic must have happened either with shipping or storage to account for those failures. otherwise have read these drives do not fail nearly as often.

Other Thoughts:

these are being used for offline archives in production so admittedly these are not being put through their paces to evaluate performance and longevity. roughly 4TB's of data are being written to them, duplicated, then sealed up into a pelican case until the inevitable. however, during the 1-2 days of data dumping they do operate at relatively cool temperatures and perform as expected.

i'd consider using these in an HTPC environment with a software raid 1. even at uncompressed blu ray / 1920 @ 60 fields a second your read speeds will be fine on these. just be careful, all drives inevitably fail and unfortunately these seemed to be a statistical anomaly!

another reviewer stated 20-25MB/s read / write and i am simply unable to recreate that performance level.
