Pros:

Pretty Fast considering its an HDD not SSD
10k RPM
Good Price to Performance (Around 50 Cents a Gigabyte)
2.5inch Drive in reality

Cons:

Has to have a heat-spreader that makes it a 3.5 drive
Not as fast as an SSD
Price to performance is only good on the lower sizes, the upper sizes still run about the cost of an upper level SSD

Other Thoughts:

Overall I am happy with the drive, it was bought on a budget system because we already had a data drive but wanted something faster than the standard 7200RPM drives for some games and boot. Its actually quite a fast boot time and loads games pretty fast for being mechanical and runs cooler than I was expecting. I thought with the heat-spreader it would reach like 50C+ but I have honestly not seen it in CPUID exceed 40C with no special fans blowing on it or anything in a small Case. I do recommend this drive to those on a budget because this can make a budget build not seem like a budget build because of the speeds you will be getting. Its no SSD, but its closer than you would think.
