Pros:

Quiet. Bought 8 of these incl. 5 on the $105 Labor Day promo, for use in a RAID5 setup. Still have 16 hours to go on the array initialization, but so far no problems. Bought a Highpoint 2720SGL Raid controller, a couple SAS-SATA forward converter cables, and 2 Cooler Master 3-4 cages to mount them in my tower case. Had to remove the fan on one of the cages to make it fit, so drive temps get up to 118 degrees F., but the other 4 drives run around 91 degrees F. during the initialization process. Will move the array to another box and reinstall the cooling fan on the one cage.

Cons:

None so far

Other Thoughts:

Wonder if I can disable the RAID on the Highpoint and then use unRAID on the array?
