Pros: Shiny. Clear, legible label. Fits snugly. Spins up when powered. Automatically recognized by Windows 7 and 8.1, drivers suggest it should work properly.
Cons: Spins down almost immediately. Causes a long boot delay. Will not initialize, format, or be of any use as intended. Wastes half a day.
Other Thoughts: For $165 it would have been a fair deal had it worked as intended. I'm hoping $10 will replace this defective unit with one that works. I considered getting a refund and maybe getting the ST4000DX001, the 4TB Hybrid with 8GB of NAND, but I'm skeptical of the performance boost. It may indeed boot and load programs faster, but I'd rather save the extra $40.
