This drive is awesome this is the second drive I have purchased like this one. only reason I didn't give it a perfect score is because the box was crushed when is came. That was probably not buy.com's fault but fedex.

Awesome Drive

on 9/30/2011

This is an Awesome Drive. I have 2 of them mirrored on my workstation at work. Bought another one of these to have as a spare. The drives are running smooth without any problems. Used daily for many hours. Running Windows 7 and 3DS Max. Shipping was quick. Everything I expected.
