I have purchased 3 of these over a 2 year peroid and I have never been dissapointed and I have encountered no failed drives. Great speed and can be a little loud at times but still quieter than many other 1Tb hard drives. No real difference between the 32mb cache and 64mb cache except the platter density.
Great for data, gaming, and installing on operating system! Data transfers decently fast, runs nice, and has plenty to offer! Seems reliable, fast, and nice and quiet most of the time. It comes in a basic package, and is simple and elegant. I love this drive, and would recommend it to anyone!
