Pros: The good drive gave me no issues, and everything went perfect.
Cons: The bad drive was chugging right along until about 75 of the file transfer crashed. The first issue I've had with and HGST Ultrastar HDD.
Overall Review: I would have confidence in recommending these drives to other people. This is the first HGST I've had an issue with. I ran all the HGST utilities and it failed on the SMART extended test. MY only choice is to RMA the defective drive.
Pros: With rare exception do I ever burn with other than Verbatim. I haven't made a coaster in over 1000 burns.
Cons: None that come to mind.
Pros: I have 4 of these units, and can find nothing but praise for the product. I am changing drives from the storage bays to active bays constantly. The only problem I have had was caused by me, and their service department was kind enough to send me the part I needed to effect the repair. These units are real workhorses, as all their products I own.
Cons: If there are any, I haven't found them in 5 years.
Overall Review: If you need a durable unit, that will stand up to constant use, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this item.
