Cons: cable will not stay in my USB 3.0 hub due to the micro B end being very loose. There is another reviewer that had the same issue. I should have headed his warning. Buy a better this cable from different brand.
Other Thoughts: Compared to the shorter cable that came with my USB 3.0 hub. this cable seems much less premium. It will literately disconnect from the weight of the cable alone. Where as the short one this was suppose to replace snaps in the correct way.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cheapest 6tb drive on the market. I got mine with a 30$ instant rebate from newegg. - price
Drives From HGST are some of the most reliable drives on the market right now according to black blaze testing. Up there with enterprise drives. - peace of mind
I can fit all my data from 2007 till now , on this drive. Thats nuts. Good bye binders full of DVDs and cds. - wow factor
Cons: While i can hear it when it gets active , this is not as bad as others have complained about . Its actually not as loud as a WD black drive. So don't let this stop you from getting one. I almost did from reading the reviews.
And while i am on the topic of cons. Please get 2 or 3 drives to make backups. It would suck major to lose 6tb of personal data.
Other Thoughts: Hmm all in all , i am very happy i got this. I had initial problems with the install due to windows 7 64 not being able to see more than 2.2tb. I know this is a problem with NTSF limitations. Supposedly you can get windows 7 to see the whole drive but couldn't figure it out. I set the bios to boot from UEFI and set the file system type to GPT with diskpart , but no dice. After 3 days of scratching my head I just installed windows 8.1 64bit and it worked right off the bat.READ FULL REVIEW
