Pros:

Very quiet
Runs cool
64MB cache
Plenty fast
SATA 3.0 interface
3 year warranty

Cons:

None found. Initially had problem with drive dropping into SATA 1.0 mode, but found a faulty cable to be the cause.

Other Thoughts:

My computer is getting a bit dated, but it still has a SATA 2.0 interface which should provide plenty of bandwidth for a traditional hard drive. Test computer runs an Asus P5E motherboard (ICH9R chipset), Core 2 Quad Q9450.

Ran 3 read and write tests with HD Tune and averaged the results.

Read speeds:
Minimum - 90.4 MB/s
Maximum - 205.0 MB/s
Average - 160.9 MB/s

Access time - 14.3 ms
Burst rate - 205.4 MB/s



Write speeds:
Minimum - 81.0 MB/s
Maximum - 203.6 MB/s
Average - 156.6 MB/s

Access time - 13.9 ms
Burst rate - 186.7 MB/s

I did some "torture testing" and checked the temp with the drive's internal sensor as well as a Micro Temp infrared thermometer:
External temp never exceeded 87F / 30.6C
Internal topped at 89.6F / 32C

I do worry about drive longevity based on some other reviews and because this is the first drive I've owned that's made in China.

This drive blows my old Western Digital WD6400AAKS out of the water. The slowest component in your PC is the hard drive and even a few years makes a huge difference. Color me impressed.
