Summary: Since these particular drives have one of the best ratings on the market, this review is directed to the seller more than the product. Seller performed as promised, drives delivered as promised, drives are working in my system as I type this. Well done/
Summary: I got 3 drives for my computer. I wanted 1 internal one and 2 externals for backups. The transfer rate is good. I'm able to get at least 6.4GB per minute using my external USB 3.0 cases with the drive in them. My cases will also handle E-SATA and I was able to get about 5GB.
Summary: I bought three of these for a raid 5 storage on a server. With adaptec sata 3 card I am getting 210 mb/s access speed average which is great for mechanical drives. Ran a full check disk on all drives prior to setting up the raid and no errors detected. Working great for a month 24/7 running.
Summary: These don't last anywhere close to the MTBF ratings, but they are warrantied for a fairly long time or they are now getting cheap enough to replace if they happen to make it past the warranty period, which about half the time in my experience.

Summary: Let the buyer beware, this might be a great product, but it is only for servers not PC. I know a little about PC's but not enough and didn't realize this could only be used for servers. A little help some where in the description to say that would of helped me out a lot.
