Pros: For being a 500GB, 7200RPM drive and USB 3.0 the price is excellent for this drive. Using it as a USB 2.0 it still faster than most drives.
Cons: You have to hook up the drive to usb 2.0 to get the driver for the USB 3.0 adapter installed, then you can hook the drive back into USB 3.0.
I was expecting 100MB/s and instead only getting between 40MB/s - 52MB/s in WIN7. Again I am using the USB 3.0 adapter that came with the drive and hook it up to my laptop. When I ran a benchmark I was getting results of 92MB/s but in WIN 7 I wasn't getting those speeds.
Maybe using it in straight motherboard with USB 3.0 port will be faster.
Other Thoughts: The highest I got is 52MB/sec on my WIN7 laptop using the USB 3.0 adapter card that came with the drive.READ FULL REVIEW
