Big, fast, cheap

Pros: Big, cheap

Cons: Holding my breath

I decided to try Seagate again recently, I have three of these drives now, one in my PC and two in RAID 1 in a NAS. So far so good, and they are fast. Really fast. For what they are. Faster than my previous darlings, the WD Black 2TB's, in most cases. And definitely cooler, a fair bit so. Long as they keep chugging and warn me before they die, I'm happy with the cost/performance/size ratio. I hope they are solid. Time will tell.
