Pros: Needed an upgrade for my kids core-2 duo systems. (3.0 ghz) I think before the upgrade 3d mark was scroing aroun 1600. After the upgrade, around 8500. games they could only run at minimum graphics levels can now be run at full anti-aliasing etc.
So far so good. Very happy with product.
Cons: The cable connection is a bit funky, but hey, it works.
Other Thoughts: I've been looking for a decent PCI-e x16 upgrade for a while, and I REALLY didn't want to upgrade EVERYTHING at the moment. This was a very nice and reasonably inexpensive solution that will put off the system upgrade for at least another year, possibly 2.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good price, 'Green drive'. Lots - o - space.
Cons: Green technology causes it to spin down a bit too often.
Other Thoughts: Using two of these drives on a FreeNAS server. Whenever I try to set the drives to save power with spindown, it seems they ignore the time-frame when to begin spin-down. (EG Time fame = 1hr, spindown happens almost immediately.)
So if you want a high-performance gaming drive, probably not for you.
On the other hand, both drives arrived 'alive' were 'plug and play' and have been working quite nicely.
