Pros: Low power consumption, good price vs capacity point, reliable so far (6+ months).
Cons: Slower than some other disks, but the focus for these drives is on low energy consumption not maximum performance.
Other Thoughts: I have 6 of these in a ZFS pool, no failures so far. They are a touch slow to start up but as I don't restart the system often that isn't an issue. By my calculations I save the cost of a single drive each year in energy vs Caviar Black drives.
Pros: Installed without a hitch. Works great in (Open)Solaris. Setup of LCAP was as simple as enabling it on the switch and then using dladm to create an aggregate link. I suspect the setup would be just as easy on other platforms. Transfered a little over a TB so far, not a single hiccup.
Cons: Little pricy for a dual interface NIC.
Other Thoughts: Does include a half-height mounting bracket for low profile cases.
