Pros: It transfers data.
Cons: 90-degree connector could be in wrong position depending on how your drives are mounted in comparison to the controller/board.
Other Thoughts: I got five of these thinking I would need them but turned out I didn't need more than two. But they work and hold on to the port well.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's a 500GB WD BLACK drive.
Cons: Price premium for the black drive is getting a little much, but hard to ding it an egg for the speed and warranty it brings.
Other Thoughts: Using as the OS drive for my home Windows server. Fast as can be. Would love to mirror these in RAID10, or even just RAID5 with a hardware controller but money goes to capacity than speed.
Kinda stinks the only drives with greater than a 3yr warranty are the black or RE drives now, but better than the garbage Seagate makes (i have three Seagates I acquired for free that have almost periodically gained reallocated sectors or worse and FW updates make no difference) .
Pros: Works. Fairly cheap. Runs as specified.
Other Thoughts: Upgraded an older AM2 system and using this with the 2GB it already had. No problems with compatibility as I put these first since they are slower-timed than the other modules (didn't try the others first as I just wanted them to work). XP 32bit so only getting some of the memory but we all know the limits of 32bit OS's.READ FULL REVIEW
