Pros: Reasonable price, good performance, good warranty, worked out of the box
Cons: None I've seen (but its only been in use for a week.
Other Thoughts: Somewhat scared because of all of the DOA reports, but figured people who get DOA drives are far more likely to submit reviews than those who are perfectly happy. Packaging on this drive was excellent and operation has been flawless.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: None that matters to me
Other Thoughts: I've had this drive docking station for 8 months now, using it to dock bare drives for backing up my systems. I've used it with 1, 1.5, and 2TB drives. While I had an initial concern about the connectors holding up for so many insertion cycles, so far it has worked without fail. If (or perhaps "when") it breaks, I'll certainly buy another.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: inexpensive, fast, quiet, low power
Cons: Difficult patching bug drive may or not have that may or may not affect you
Other Thoughts: Only negative I can say is you may have to patch the drive for a bug that may or may not affect you and may or not be present. For some reason Samsung didn't revise the firmware level so you don't know if the drive you buy has patched firmware. And the patch is a DOS program rather than a bootable CD image. It took a while to get a how-to on that. But since I'm now set up to patch the drives, I bought more.
I had no problems with a bunch of 1.5TB Samsung drives I bought a year ago. Hopefully my luck will continue.
