Pros
Quiet, power efficient
Cons
Slower than a WD blue or Black
Summary
I purchased this drive and I am using it in a Vantec USB 2.0 external enclosure. It is perfect for that role. You get the same performance as other drives because of the limitation of the USB 2.0 spec, but with a lot less heat and noise.

Pros
Good price, lots of storage
Cons
none
Summary
Works good just like any other 500G hard drive, its green so it uses less power which is good. 500 gigs is more than enough for the average user.

Pros
- Cool
- Quiet
Cons
- Little bit of 'drone noise' heard when room is silent, but that is to be expected from a HDD
Summary
Using as a DVR HDD with a 6131 receiver. Plugged directly into the 6131 when received without issues. Runs cool and quiet with Nexstar CX case. 66hrs of HD and 400+hrs of SD recording. Scheduled recordings of HD shows play back perfectly without lags or slow downs of any sort. Pause, RWD, FWD, and random recording work flawlessly.
