Performance

I bought this drive during one of Buy.com's sales, so I got it for $149.99 after rebate. That is an awesome price for 2 terabytes of storage! The case runs warm after extended use but does not get too hot. Due to its "green" attributes, the drive's speed changes, so it does not have the consistent speed and lower noise of a 7200 RPM drive. However, the energy savings and bang-for-the-buck are fair trade-offs for a little more noise. As for the eSATA, at first it didn't work for me until I realized I had to enable that feature in my BIOS and had to have the drive turned on and plugged into my eSATA port prior to booting up.

Can't blame so far - this drive serves me well, though I don't put much load on it - I use it for occasioan backup. Performance is okay, sound level is okay, it doesn't get too hot. What I don't like is rebate process. I have sent my rebate over to the processing company back in February, they are still processing it. So, my guess is - do not expect to get rebate ever.
