Requires 12V power!

Comments: This and all other Seagate Constellation drives REQUIRE 12 volt power from the SATA connector, and most if not ALL laptops do not supply 12v power through their SATA headers, only 5V power.
Therefore, even if you can physically fit a Constellation drive in your laptop, it won't spin up because the spindle motor and servo arm magnet requires 12 volts.

Great drive,terrible price point

Pros: As many have noted,this is a great server drive (not many notebooks can shoehorn this in). The drive is a quiet,cool running monster for small space requirement server chassis or limited space desktops.

Cons: Price,price,PRICE!!! For the money,we should be getting a 10k rpm drive w/ 64Mb cache. Deducted one egg for that. It's not a performance based deduction,strictly bcuz of price points.

Other Thoughts: I bought mine from a source other than newegg,but I need 6 more for the array (raid 0+1) in my desktop. Hotswappable backplanes w/ 2Tb of corporate drives w/ real time backup sounds pretty good,no?

SAN Drives

Pros: Fast, Dense, Runs cool, low foot print

Cons: High price/GB

Other Thoughts: Have 24 of these running in a SAN. The performance is absolutely awesome. 2U gets you 12 raw TB which is fairly dense. 4 of these in a RAID10 gives extremely good performance when doing high intensity DB calls.

Research

Pros: I do not have this although I would like to order for my laptop but due to things I have read the chances that this will fit my laptop is slim. HP Dv5

Cons: Appears to be a server from the info I have read... That stinks

P.S sorry Newegg I kinda violated the terms about links but thought it would be helpful for the user.

Other Thoughts: Here is some info that I have uncovered about this drive.

Server HD, not laptop

Pros: These drives are for NAS applications etc. From their website: "High-density, multi-spindle Tier 2/nearline storage requirements including servers and NAS, SAN and RAID storage environments". These are good drives when used in the above scenarios.

Cons: None really.

Other Thoughts: I guess if you can shoehorn it into your laptop that's cool, but not the right application.

Doesn't fit in Macbook Pro (Santa Rosa)

Pros: I'm sure it's a great drive.

Cons: Doesn't fit all laptops, particularly pre unibody Macbook Pros... you'll need to stick with a 16MB cache instead..

Other Thoughts: Hitachi Travelstar 500GB 16MB 7200 RPM is pretty much the best you can do unless you get a SSD which would cost you nearly $750 for 256GB
