Great HDD, does what's intended to do. 07/09/2013
Most of the pros I have to share has already been said. This again comes with a whopping 64MB cache and the speeds on this is pretty decent for an HDD intended to be on 24/7.
There is no reason to buy one of these drives unless you plan to use it with an application that needs the drive to be running for 24/7. I say this because the whole purpose for this drive is because of the quietness, less power hungry, and better/shorter wear on the drive itself.
Some may say the price tag is a bit pricey, but honestly not every drive has the features this one does. Though again this will on benefit the ones who need them. Others will simply turn away when they see the 1TB capacity and the price tag together.
I highly recommend anyone who wants a good, quiet and reliable drive for anything they plan on keeping personal files in.
Not a con, but some if not most will say the price is too high.
Buy it if it's what you need, if it meets your requirements. For the price and for what you are getting it's not bad at all. I have been thinking of getting another for raid and doing storage/streaming that way. From that I plan to see faster speeds, not a lot but maybe a small boost. On top of that the drive is dead quiet, so if you want. Get 3-4 of these and raid them, it will be quiet, cool and cut some costs off your electricity bill. The pros from this HDD makes it a no brainier.
