Summary: Great storage drive for media or for dual OS booting. It hasn't given me any problem in the least. Even if it dies its still better than having to buy a worse quality drive at Best Buy for $100 or more. Every Hardrive eventually dies, thats just the way is goes.
Pros: -Great price, got mine for $50 shipped. -More than enough space for most people -Snappy load for both Vista and Windows 7 -isn't loud or noisy at all
Cons: It isn't a Velociraptor or a Intel SSD but its a good upgrade if your using an aging IDE 160 or 250.
Summary: I have been using a similar drive(different model no.) for a couple years as an USB external back up drive---no problem! Despite the salesman suggestion of getting a Seagate one for another $5.00 more, I upped for this one.
Pros: Good price; faster than the 3 years old SATA I Maxtor 100GB drive it replaces; not very hot; fair amount of cache
Cons: not as quiet as the 3 years old SATA I Maxtor 100GB drive
