Summary: This is my first 3TB hard drive. I am using it as a backup drive. So far, so good. I keep three full backups and hourly incremental backups on this drive. Saves time manually copying from drive to drive to keep full backups.
Summary: 2 months after installation the drive's read capability is unstable. After 2 full re-formats, writing to the drive is fine but trying to read random files causes the computer to lock up. Can't trust it.
Pros: I got this at a great sale price to backup data stored on my 3-4 year old drives to ensure I have backups of my backups. With a space saving form factor and 3 platter design, this appears to be a solid and well built storage device.
Cons: None that I didn't no about before purchase.
