Pros: This is a standard 7200 rpm drive that I bought as a reconditioned item at a great price. I have been working this thing to death from a docking station. It has been running for many hours and runs cool and quiet. It is fast and easy to work with as long as you don't have an issue with a bare drive. This purchase was a no-brainer.
Summary: This thing also gets a bit hot. Nothing too serious but it was more noticeable than that of the stock Fujitsu drive in the MBP.
Pros: One of the fastest 2.5 inch drives on the market right now, and at a pretty decent price. Like the others have said, this can get a bit loud but the performance makes up for it. I was having a pleasant experience until...
Cons: ...I got some read errors, and lots of 'em. Bad blocks.
