Pros: These drives speed up any laptop. The speed, reliability in function and the confidence inspired by its 5 year warranty is proof of the quality in manufacture exhibited by WD's Black series. I have had many of these since the Sata 150 days (2.5"and 3.5") and I can say I would keep buying them all the time except I still have the first one I bought and it works wonderfully.
Cons: At 7200 RPM's you gotta watch your laptop's battery life but not enough to loose an egg.
Other Thoughts: I think the day I bought this the 500GB version was on sale and cheaper but I didn't notice, boo hoo.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought two of these to setup a crossfire system on the cheap and these two rock. Have seen Idle temps between 22 and 30 degrees and loads at maybe 55 to 60. Can Run almost anything at max on 1080p and can hook up like six monitors even though eyefinity is for much more powerful cards. Run cool, shorter board than standard 5850 so they fit in almost any midtower case.
Cons: Votage regulator is a little cheap so these can't overclock as well as most 5850's due to this but 2 in crossfire are overkill for almost anything. My board only has 2 PCIE slots. The lame two year warranty that powercolor offers is a joke compared to most in the market.
Other Thoughts: The price is awesome, two of these run way better than two 6850's and trade blows with the 6870 even in crossfire, all these for 140 less than two 6870's. If you don't care about all the 3d features that the new cards have these are a better option. Did I mention they're super cheap.
