Pros:

Cheapest on the market.
Low heat & power-- very important to me.

I own about 8 of these in different laptops, and also the 72k model as well.

Cons:

Not meat to support ANY antiquated operating system's prior to 2008/9, thats when AF when was made available in mainstream i believe. So -this is not the answer to upgrade an antiquated MAC-XP-LINUX machine and expect it to run like new. Alignment issues may be a problem if your still trying to use outdated technology- thats all AF drives though not specific to this one. Hitachi drive's are known for a short life, that's not big secret.

Could have a bigger cache

Other Thoughts:

Its a very good purchase for a normal/average user. Used properly it should last forever. Now if your a power user you should have bought something else, this is not a high performance drive. SHAME on you for trying to save 15$- you read the specs before you bought it you know better. Read/Write speeds are fine, I have tested it by itself with proper format and by itself. I use as a stripe drive drive with an SSD. I wouldn't make it a primary drive- but that's me. I'm a power user and i know better. These drives have a short life when abused(2-3yrs max)- like anything i suppose. My typical use on this is 128/256SSD for an OS and use this to extend C: drive onto so i end up 1.2tb C:drive and all the OS stuff stays on the SSD.. That give's me speed and lots of space.
