Summary: So far, the drive works fine, but beware, they moved the screw holes on the underside of the drive. This means that these drives will not work on a Mac Pros with the metal sled attachments. If you intend to use these on a Mac Pro, beware!
Generic drive. SSD should be considered if speed is important, otherwise get this if you have found a great price

Summary: I ordered the 32mb cache, 3.5inch 3gb/s SATA drive as pictured and described in the information. When I received it, the box was correct, same model #, showed it was 3.5", etc. However, inside the box was a 2.5", 64mb Cache HDD. It was brand-new, etc, however, its not what I ordered.
