Pros: I picked this drive as an upgrade to the 160GB stock drive in my Dell 10v netbook. It got the nod because it was the largest size available in this form factor and because 5400 RPM isn't going to eat battery life or generate stupid amounts of heat.

Cons: None I found.
Other Thoughts: I found one of these at a local thrift store this weekend. Used it the next day to clone the contents of my Dell hackintosh netbook onto a new 1TB drive, in preparation for a drive swap.

Pros: Works as advertised.
Cons: Doesn't install itself.
