Pros: This is a must for laptops that run hot during gaming. Lowered all of my temps by 20C from 60C to 40C
Cons: Only lowered my GPU temp by around 5-8C, because it's located on the bottom left of my laptop. Airflow if focused around the Upper and Middle sections of laptops. Airflow still reaches the bottom, but not as much.
Pros: This is a Great Drive. Runs great, and uses less power than normal drives. WD is the only brand of HDD I'll ever use. I've never had any problems with any of the WD drives I've had (Can't say the same thing for Seagate)
Cons: I like the Caviar Black drives better, but this is a great drive that I order for customers that aren't gamers.
Overall Review: The only Problem I had with this drive, had nothing to do with the drive itself. I will probably not order another HDD from NewEgg again because of their lack of packaging to keep the drive safe in transit. The only thing keeping this drive safe from damage during shipping is a small layer of bubble wrap, and that's it. When I've ordered HDD's from other sites, they at least come as a drive wrapped in bubble wrap, surrounded by egg-crate foam, and packaged in a box. Sending a HDD with a single layer of bubble wrap to protect it was unacceptable. Thankfully, the drive works fine, so it was not too big a deal as I've made it out to be.
