Pros:

Runs surprisingly cool.

Cons:

None.

Other Thoughts:

I bought one of these when I decided 1 TB wasn't enough to hold all my virtual machines, software, and media collection any more. The price was so cheap that I didn't see any qualms with purchasing it, and since BIOS can only support up to 2 TB without software enhancements, I decided it was the best option at this price.

The speed is noticably faster than my old WD 5200 RPM 1 TB green drive. While nowhere near as fast as an SSD or a hybrid drive, until the prices of high capacity SSDs come down to reasonably levels, there will always be a place for traditional platter-based hard drives. Some people simply need capacity over speed, and I am one of these people, though I do plan on buying a Samsung 840 SSD in the near future.

The drive runs surprisingly cool. Even before I put a front fan in my PC case to cool my array, I was shocked to find it was no warmer than my WD green drive, and when I put in the aforementioned fan, I have no issues with heat at all any more.

You simply can't beat the price and performance of this drive! I plan on buying at least two more; one for my NAS and one so I can have a dual boot, dual hard drive setup of Windows 8 and Arch Linux. I have had this drive for several months now, and there have been no issues. And at this price range, I'm not so concerned anyway.
