Summary: I bought the drive expecting it to be as indicated in the product description: 6 Gb/s SATA. This feature is essential to be compatible in a drive array I was installing it into. Instead it turns out to be a 3 Gb/s drive with a different model number and a mismatch to the other drives in the array. I'm very disappointed as I have wasted my money. If I would have known the true model and specification level of the drive I would have know to look elsewhere.
Summary: I wanted an internal hard drive for a laptop. This came up in the search and I saw 1TB and fast speed and decided it was the best drive for the money. If it actually fit in a laptop it would have been great. I had to send it back. This is an internal drive for a desktop computer, not a laptop.
Summary: What is not to like about it? If there is anything not to like, I will not know that most likely for a long time. Meaning that I rarely have problems with desktop drives like this, and even laptop drives don't show problems for a long time. I have not done any performance testing -- I rarely do.
