2.Runs fairly cool.
4.Comes with plenty of cables.
Cons: Documentation is atrocious, especially at this price and quality range.
Not really a con but this psu is slightly longer than most normal power supplies and while most if not all mid-tower cases will have no trouble installing this, it is worth mentioning.
Other Thoughts: Keep in mind that this is fully modular, however unlike most psu's each cable's plugin location isn't separately named and is instead completely user chosen, as such you can place for example, your hard drive cables into the same rail that your graphics card is plugged into and so forth, while this makes cabling in itself pretty easy, it can be confusing at first if you do not know of this and have never used this type of psu cabling before.
That said i am quite happy with this psu, and if you can afford it, i would highly recommend it.
Pros: Fast for a NAS drive.
Fast enough to run games off of.
Size will be very difficult for the average user to fill.
Probably the most reliable HDD i've owned.
Cons: Runs hotter than any other HDD i've owned, averages around 37c in a case with 3 HDD's and 1 SSD with a Radeon 7950 and an overclocked i5 2500k, that said google has tested HDD's in higher temps and found that the effect of heat on HDD's does not seem to effect them until you get around 50c.
Other Thoughts: I will probably buy another one of these at some point soon in the future to replace a seagate 3TB HDD, i would highly suggest anyone to buy this HDD, in fact i would buy this over any other 4TB HDD, as again the quality is top notch.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Capacity is great, no extra fluff, no free 30 day trials installed, just an empty 4TB HDD.
Transfer speed is good, even when transferring over usb 2.0 sources, much better over usb 3.0 obviously.
Cons: The usb 3.0 cable is garbage, so bad in fact that i would suggest buying a separate A male to B male usb Cable if you purchase this HDD.
I had a USB 2.0 A to B cable on an old printer that i tested to see if the HDD;s problems were the cable until a new one arrived, so if B/C with usb 2.0 is a requirement, yes it works, just be sure that you have an OS that can handle 4tb.
The HDD does go to sleep after a while, and is fairly slow in waking up, such doesn't bother me as i only purchased it as a backup drive anyway.
Other Thoughts: Deducted an egg for the usb cable quality, the HDD itself is as good as any other western digital drive in itself, to the point that i honestly do not know what they were thinking when they packaged these cables with the HDD, many faulty drives are most likely usb cable issues more than the HDD i would guess.
I am happy with my purchase, however i do wish WD would spend the extra few cents to up the quality of their cables.
