Pros absolutely nothing.
Cons just about everything.
Summary I bought one of these overpriced pieces of doo dung ($275 USD) a year and a half ago thinking I was somehow entering the world of cutting edge technology. About 3 months in, the drive failed to mount. I used the warranty to return and get a brand new refurbished piece of doo dung, sent via texas, to hong kong, back to me. When I finally got the package and opened it, the drive looked as if it had been used as a step stool, with a small ********* foot print on the top casing.
This one lasted about a week until I started getting the clicks of doom. I let it sit for a few months and instead of going through the hassle of returning it I decided to rip the casing off to see if that helped. And it did! The drive is now semi reliable, however you have to take the top off to let it breathe, unscrew the metal casing, and point a fan directly over it while it's in use. I have concluded that its initial design has made it so the drive overheats and cuts off. If you don't mind jury rigging it for it to work or it's horrific tank- like appearance once you pop the covers off, then this is the drive for you! If not, then spend a lot less and get a lot more with a different brand.
Pros Cool white flashing light
Cons High Failure rate
Summary Had two Maxtor hard drives similar to this one and they both failed. The first one a 1tb server failed after only 1 week of light use (Ebay seller refunded full amount for the drive). The second drive was this 600g which I had for a little over a year and just failed, increadible. I called seagate and they indicated that the drive failed and it would cost me over $1000 to recover the data. Do not purchase any Maxtor hard drives you will waste your money and all valuable data. I would rate Seagates tech support 3 out of 10, not very reliable support.
