Great Drive, Fast speeds for gaming

Verdict: Fast Drive, I've only had it for a month and will update this when it fails.

Not as advertised

Verdict: The spin speed on this is not 7200 but only 5425. The PRO version is the only one that is 7200. The throughput was less than 100MBs so I am returning the product.

Cons: both WD and Seagate have discontinued 7200rpm drives for the consumer level and lowered the warranty periods to 2 years. disappointing, but the cost/benefit ratio for the 5y warranty drive isn't really good if you replace the drive in case of failure within 5 years anyway; the expected lifetime of...

Decent HDD

Verdict: Decent hard drive. Bought it as a parity drive for my unRAID server. Compared to the WD Red series, it performs the same. May have less longevity but none the less a good drive
