Most Critical Review

Be sure to upgrade the firmware

Pros: Fast, Great Value

Cons: Be sure to apply the firmware upgrade from Western Digital if adding to a RAID Array! I have lost one from an array and now need to apply the firmware upgrade to all drives involved. More risk than I care to have in my business.

Overall Review: Go to the Western Digital web site for the firmware upgrade. If not for this, I would give the drive a 5.
