$159.99 after rebate plus free shipping was a great deal. Well, plus tax of course... :( Pros - great aluminum enclosure (though plastic support) - dual interface USB + eSata Cons - FAT32 not a big deal though as quick reformatting to NTFS takes only seconds - a bit noisy. There is no fan but the noise from disk and heads was very audible. - warm after hours of usage (not hot though) Overall, unbeatable as a backup solution. But I wouldn't use it as a source for listening music and viewing movies. Noise ratio is not acceptable for this purpose IMHO.

-Reviewer quote

I've had this drive for over a month now. With this you are paying LESS THAN 1 CENT PER GIG. It ends up being abround 1.83 TB. Mine stays barely warm to the touch. It is very solid and made well. My only gripe would be as others have mentioned, the drive does make some noise...that clicking sound when its working sometimes. You will want to format to NTFS right away or else you will not be able to put any files on it over 4 gigs. Not a big deal at all though...my experience has been a lot of drives ship with FAT32. Over all...great buy.
