Pros:

I have had a chance to put this hard drive through some basic file moving situations... First I took it to work (I work for a wireless internet service provider) and we do everything in house including our storage servers. I backed everything up from my storage server (about 250GB worth) at work and brought it home and hook it up in my personal home server. Everything transferred with out a hitch and with a reasonable transfer rate(around 150mbs). I wasn't expecting super high performance out of this "storage" drive since it does have low RPM and isn't really built for a fast boot drive but it really did surprise me a bit. I have basically used this hard drive as a normal user would and haven't put it through any benchmarks since that really isn't it's main purpose. As a storage drive I can say it works as expected and I am sure a few of these in a RAID configuration they would store your data just fine. I think Seagate is making a come back after some bad reviews I have seen in the last year or so. I will continue to trust my data and movie files on this till it proves me wrong :)

Cons:

Price tag is a little steep IMO...but you do get some extras so it's your call

Other Thoughts:

Decent performance with a decent warrentee with a little steep price tag
