Pros: Easiest installation over any other drive. Hands down... plug it in and boom it worked. After I had installed the 3TB IBM drive, the next morning I found that my computer grew legs, even arms(!) and installed a disco ball in the rec room and had the stereo blaring!!
Cons: I'm confused why the computer hadn't decided to use it's own Windows media player over the home stereo system.
Pros: I see that IBM hasn't lost their sense of humor. If you're not spending $1k for a HDD, yer just simply missing out on the greater things in life.
Cons: Cons? Not so much for this drive, but for other similarly sized drives, for not properly taking advantage of the consumer like IBM does. Seagate, Hitatchi, and the likes are just making it WAY too easy for people to build computer systems by not effectively gouging the consumers. SAD!
If the almighty had a Hard Drive, This would be it.
