    I bought this at the £100 price point and am very happy with it. I ran a four times destructive badblocks on it and found no bad sectors. That process did take a few days, though, and running the drive at that stress sitting on a flat surface did cause the drive to give a temperature warning (39 degrees Celsius).

    Benchmarking (ext4 on Ubuntu Linux):
    90.9 MB/s average read
    41.6 MB/s average write
    20.12 msec average access time

    Works well with Gnu/Linux without having to get around hard disk encryption etc like you do with some external drives.
