Pros: No fan and using in htpc doesn't seem to tax it enough to be an issue.
Cons: It can be a little poky trying to drive a 4K screen (4096x2160 or 3840x2160), but this isn't surprising.
Other Thoughts: Works fine in a ASRock A770DE+ system (PCI Express 2.0 16x slot) running Linux (3.14) and the open source ATI (radeon) drivers with vdpau/vaapi.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TOSHIBA 640GB USB 2.0 2.5" Portable External Hard Drive HDDR640E04XK Black
Pros: great price, nice physical size, huge amount of storage, USB powered
Cons: if you transfer really large files (4+ GiB) to the device where the cache can no longer buffer the writes, the performance takes a _huge_ nose dive. so if you want this as a backup for small/medium sized files, it's fine. but if you want to start storing large disk images/videos/etc..., look somewhere else.
Other Thoughts: gave it to my gf as a backup device to replace her older smaller external usb drive and is fine for that (syncing existing files and really doesnt store multi-gigabyte things)READ FULL REVIEW
