Pros: Large capacity, fast, 7200 rpms, 2 yr warranty

Cons: Extremely loud, problems at first read below

Overall Review: I left this transferring around 300gb of files overnight and it worked fine the next day. However a day later computer would no longer read hard drive. Used Segate file recovery to get files back, reformatted it, transfered files back, and it has worked like a charm ever since. It may have been formatted improperly at the factory so I might suggest reformatting drive before using it just to be safe. I removed one egg for this problem and for its loud noise. Use it for hd movie collection on HTPC.

Great!

Pros: Very fast! Lots of storage!

Cons: No sata cable included... but then again I did buy oem.

Overall Review: Ive been using this drive in my home server for about 9 months now and havent ever had a problem with it. I will definately consider buying another WD drive when this one fills up.
