Excellent, Fast, Large Drive

Pros: Very fast, due to its 105 MB/s sustained transfer rate and its generous 32 MB on board cache. Very quiet - no incremental audible noise at all after I added this drive to my Mac Pro (Jan 2008 model). Very large - 750 GB is an excellent size for just about anything you may need to do, and because it is not the largest size (1 TB) it doesn't command a huge price premium.

Cons: None that I know of.

Overall Review: Adding this drive to my Mac Pro and making it the boot drive nearly halved my boot time and significantly decreased application launch times for all apps, vs. the Seagate 7200.10 drive that my Mac came equipped with. I strongly recommend this drive. It is an excellent performer and a great deal financially as well.
