Pros: Drive is very quiet and was relatively quick for a green drive.
Cons: If used in a HTPC as data and OS drive, booting can be very slow, but this is not so much a con since WD said it was not meant to serve as an OS drive.
Died unexpectedly, without any warning after 6 months of very light use. Maybe 50 hours total uptime (don't use my HTPC that much anymore). Drive is completely dead, is not recognized by BIOS in any machine I put it in.
Other Thoughts: Drives die, it's the nature of mechanical things. Overall I've had pretty good success with WD, I think I was just unlucky this time.
