Quiet and cool operation. Good drive.
Strengths: Quiet, cool, inexpensive
Weakness: Can't think of one now.
I bought this drive because the WD site said it is quiet and cool during operation, two features most important to me. And the drive lives up to the reputation. It also has very good specifications and is the least expensive 500GB IDE harddrive available now. What else can you expect? I am really satisfied with it.
