Pros:

So far so good. All of the drives I bought worked perfectly as soon as they were installed. No recoginition problems as others reported, and no errors during low level formats or drive scans. I can barely hear them operating (ambiant sound level in my case is ~65dB, read/write clicks are ~70dB as measured 3" from the drive being used, and that's with 7 hard drives and 5 fans ranging from 3-4"), and they're barely warm (about 100 degrees as reported by the drives themselves), so I don't know what others are complaining about, perhaps I got a newer batch?

Cons:

That little "limit throughput to 1.5 Gbps" jumper is a real pain to get off, and I can't imagine how you would ever get it back on!

Other Thoughts:

With regard to the comments I've read about Seagate not honoring the warantee on OEM drives: that is simply not true, I contacted Seagate about this before I bought, and here is their reply:

"Dear Steve,

With regards to your query, we would like to inform you that if you purchase the drive independently from an authorized retailer, Seagate would honor the full warranty from your date of purchase, 1year warranty for external drives and 5 year warranty for internal drives. We suggest you to preserve a copy of your Proof Of Purchase for future reference.

*Please note that the 5-year warranty is applicable ONLY to Internal drives shipped on or after June 1st, 2004."

and

"Dear Steve,

This is with regards to your query, we would like to inform you that Newegg.com is authorized retailer for Seagate."
