Pros: Three of five drives are still alive after three days, so I guess that's something.
Cons: The other reviews are correct. These drives are a crapshoot.
Other Thoughts: I purchased four of these to upgrade a home NAS. After installing and formatting, one drive prompted died within one hour with a SMART failure and multiple bad sectors. So, I RMA'd it and bought another, figuring I would have a spare when the RMA replacement arrived. After receiving the fifth drive, I installed it (in a different slot from the previous failure's, mind you) and upon formatting, that drive died too - no SMART status, zero capacity - it was a brick in less than two hours.
So now, I have two drives in RMA and not a whole lot of satisfaction. I rather wish now I had ignored the attractive pricing and had steered myself to something more expensive, but more reliable. It remains to be seen whether or not the replacements will right the situation, but it's a real pain to have 3/4 of a matched set and not a whole of of options besides returning them outright and starting over.
