Quiet cool, and hopefully durable
I don't run a data center; I built this box for a home server. I selected this model instead of one of the new, green Caviars because of energy efficiency, the 5 year warranty and very long "mean time before failure". This model is more expensive than the consumer 1 terabyte models, but my time is valuable too, and I don't want to spend another day of my life recovering from a hard disk failure or crying over lost photos and movies. It's only been up and running for a couple of weeks, but so far I'm impressed. It runs cool, it's quick, and it's nearly silent. Ask me in five years about longevity; I hope it's as good as they say it is!
