Pros: I have been using 2 of these drives since May 2013 as media storage drives in windows media center for whole house steaming. They are still running great while not being in a RAID array.
Cons: ALL 7200 rpm drives HAVE TO BE ACTIVELY COOLED! If not, don't expect them to last very long.
Other Thoughts: When I first bought these, I got a Rosewill Blackhawk case with them because it came with 2 front fans preinstalled cooling fans for the HDD cages. It's been great ever since.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: When working, all is well, I'm happy.
Cons: When I first got the board, the killer nic was switching on & off, never stable, so, I flashed the bios. The board came with the latest Bios. After that it was okay for about a month & a half. Then, the pc would start slowing down & the usb3 controller started dropping out. Reflashed the bios, The PC was back at speed, but, the usb3 was gone.
Other Thoughts: Either the bios chip or it is a poorly written bios. The current file is 7693vM2. I've tried it in Windows 7 32b, win 10 tp 32b, &,win 10 64b.The most problems show up in the 32 bit windows installs.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good looking, plenty of room, comes with 5 installed quiet fans. Has very good cable management and not too many ODD slots.
Cons: Out of the 5 installed fans, only 1 came with a motherboard header. All the rest are molex connectors.
Other Thoughts: The fan connectors were the only fault I found with this case.
It's a great case otherwise.
