Pros: Just installed Vista last night, with no problems. I am using this as a stand alone hard drive. I purchased a regular WD black 750GB and was so impressed that I decide to get this high-end drive.
Cons: nothing, so far
Overall Review: I'm tired of HD errors and failures. From now on, I am only buying RE hard drives from Western Digital. I was disappointed with a SG 7200.11 HD. RE=Raid Edition, but you can use them as stand alone drives. These drives are tested better.
Fast shipping, works fine.
Pros: Appears to work fine. I sincerely hope that it will continue to do so.
Cons: It did pull max power from the usb port. I liked the older hard drives that had a dual usb connection for added power to the unit.
Overall Review: I purchased the extended warranty, since I've seem MANY hard drives die over the years. But they are a necessary evil.
