Pros: Competitive price, good spec's, better rated than most of the other 3 TB drives.
Cons: See other thoughts.
Other Thoughts: Drives are too new to really say anything about them one way or the other. Bought them for a simple raid mirror. My SSD crashed and then was unbootable after installation (this happened twice). Replaced the SSD, and didn't have anymore issues.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: PLEXTOR Duplication Grade DVD/CD SATA Burner Drive PX-891SAW - OEM
Pros: Reasonably priced, solid performance for digital audio extraction (aka ripping).
Other Thoughts: Plextors have been the finest drives I've owned over the years. I purchased this one to augment my selection of optical drives, and it consistently matches the check-sums provided by the accuraterip database.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Inexpensive 3 TB hard drive.
Cons: None. It arrived in working condition, can't really say much about it one way or the other in such little time.
Other Thoughts: I stopped buying WD hard drives a long time ago after having problems with drives either arriving DOA or dying after several months of typical home use. A recent article indicated that while WD's appear to have a higher DOA rate than other manufacturers, their lifespan/longevity seem to be better than other manufacturers. So for me this is a test case for the current state of WD.
Heads Up: This is a NAS drive and not meant for blazing fast access. The format I started on another drive after I had started the format on the WD finished substantially sooner than the WD.
