Summary: It seems a lot of drives that have a lot of 4 & 5 star reviews also have a lot of 1 stars with the complaint that the drive failed quickly. With my experience of having this drive run for 7+ years it seems that the construction of a reliable drive is hit-or-miss even from the best manufacturers.
Pros: This drive has been perfect. I haven't even had to think about it since I installed it (other than knowing that all HDD need a backup!)
Cons: None. Now I want the same product with more disk space and cache.
