Pros: Fast compared to my previous WD scorpio 5400 RPM drive. Installed latest ubuntu, noticeable speed increase.
Cons: Is warmer, louder, and more power hungry compared to previous drive. That's to be expected. Extra power draw is minimal. Old drive was .5 watts, this one uses about 1, which is insignificant considering my CPU uses about 35.
Other Thoughts: Using Read-Only Benchmark from Ubuntu's disk utility:
Min Read Rate:26.9mb/s
Max Read Rate:105mb/s
Average Access Time: 17.5ms

Other Thoughts: don't be an idiot. check for updates.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Provides consistent, stable power. Black sleeves help airflow. Extra wires were easily stashed in the bottom of my Antec 900. The cabling and sleeves make it easy to perform cable management.
Comes with a velvet bag to put it in for all those times you carry around your power supply outside your case.
Cons: It was kind of hard to get the 20+4 pin connector in, because the +4 part wouldn't line up quite right.
Other Thoughts: After upgrading from a 500 watt unit, I was able to push my components significantly further.READ FULL REVIEW
