  • Pros: These drives are rock solid. Doesn't matter where, if it needs a mechanical drive, it gets one of these. They run cool, quiet, and consistent.
  • Cons: None, although packaging could be better, as another reviewer said.

Excellent product & price

Garrett C., Newegg
4 September 2013
  • Pros: Extremely reliable and efficient drive that is priced at a point that small businesses can benefit from.
  • Cons: Some may have issues with using this drive in laptops due to over-size height. Please note that this is an enterprise drive NOT designed for laptop applications.

Good mechanical drive

Michael U., Newegg
2 August 2013
  • Pros: Fast for a mechanical drive:
  • Cons: More expensive than similar drives. However, this drive is supposed to be enterprise quality, so it should be more reliable over time than the less expensive drivers with the same capacity. However, this can only be confirmed over time.

Great Hard Drive

John P., Newegg
1 July 2013
  • Summary: * If NTFS file system is used you be limited 2TB, and will have to partition rest of drive out.
  • Pros: * Great Read Speeds Through Drive for a 7200RPM Drive 174MB/s Average , 210 Peak as per 5 runs of HDtunePro.
  • Cons: * Due to being 3 TB you should be using formated using (GPT) GUID Partition Table file system. Older OSs may have an issue using it. Then again if you are buying this your system most likely is up to date.

Constellation is Stellar!!

Michael W., Newegg
26 May 2013
  • Pros: *Excellent Throughput & Low Latency
  • Cons: *Idle power is a tad high for my taste but as an enterprise class drive it is right where it needs to be. Other than that I can't find any other true faults with this drive.
