Pros:Speed, Reliability, Price, silly amount of storage
Cons:Possibly a bit loud for Near Silent/HTPC People.
This is a great drive. Possibly a little noisy if you are running an Ultra Quiet PC, but for most, Standard Fan Noise will drown it out.

I hammer this drive, it's constantly accessing 12 or hours a day (Fileserver), and have had no issues with it whatsoever. Not the cheapest, but only a little more expensive than other inferior drives. Perfect for Video Editing/Storage.
Will also Play nice with other brands of drives on the same IDE Controller, and the 8MB cache makes a big difference.
In short, the best Drive Purchase I've made in a long time, and I've been Building/Repairing PC's for 18 Years!
