Pros: I almost never write reviews but for this I had to! I bought one of these to start and was blown away. Average sustained write was well over 400MBs and read 500MBs Plus! I was so impressed that I figured I'd buy another for a Raid 0 set up to capture video. Wow is all I can say average sustained write is a whopping 685MBs but more than half of the time would hit 800MBs and peaked out at 1000+ about 10% of the time. Same for write speeds just plain amazing! I only say 685 average cause it's on the lowest side of the numbers I got. It seems as though the more time I work with them they get faster! The first few tests right after install and raid config were very horrible and I was thinking I had a bad one. All they needed was a couple of re-boots and some more testing all set!

Cons: NONE!

Other Thoughts: My quick specs:

Software tested with: Black Magic Disk Speed Test

Asus Z87-A
Intel i7 4770k
Corsair Veng Pro 16Gb
O.S. H.D. Samsung Evo 120GB

Pros: For the price seems great. No problems with it at all so far. Plugged right in no problem works well with my SSD's in my system I use it for main storage and the transfer rates burst to over 200 MBs a second and settle at about 110. This is when transferring from the SSD's to it. So performance is nice, low heat and noise I can't hear it at all. Overall great buy.

Cons: None except it's not 5 TB's Ha!

Pros: Bought a second one of these to back up the first one I bought awhile ago. No problems or complaints at all. Both worked flawlessly and Newegg shipped fast like always! Great to have 2 so I have plenty of room for all my files and one for back up I keep in a safe for protection. Very affordable, I use them just for storage SSD's are the onl;y thing to use for OS!

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: Great Price for performance and capacity!
