Pros: working - no drama. so far, so good.
Cons: after reading the user feedback on the 2TB and 3TB versions of the same drive, I think it's safe to say - WD has "issues" with the RED line of drives. Read the reviews yourself - before you buy into the WD Red line of drives.
If I had - I would have picked something else.
Other Thoughts: Been a loyal WD fanboy for a long time. EVERY disk drive manufacturer, over the long term, has had "the drive from hell" line of products. The most memorable was the IBM DeskStar - which was renamed "DeathStar" on the 'web. It turned out that the larger capacity versions had the highest failure rates. I believe that the WD Red series will have a similar entry in the history of "Drives From Hell" - if anyone ever writes one.
Recommendation: Avoid the Red line until:
a) WD publicly admits "we have a problem"
b) resolves the issues
Call the Red 24-hr hotline (on a speaker phone) and see how long the wait time is. When it goes down from, currently, an average of 1-hour, you'll know the "issue" is resolved! :)
Pros: Excellent LCD monitor with multiple input sources: HDMI, DVI-D, Displayport and VGA. If you don't know what an IPS panel is, or what the benefits are, you should research it. Well worth the price premium. Great color, contrast, brightness (needed to be turned down) and a stand the just "works".
Cons: none to date - can I get it for free? :)READ FULL REVIEW
