*Not a 7.2 krpm drive*

Strengths:
bandwidth and size per unit cost is excellent. fine for RAID-1 since my OS is on SSD.
Weaknesses:
both WD and Seagate have discontinued 7200rpm drives for the consumer level and lowered the warranty periods to 2 years. disappointing, but the cost/benefit ratio for the 5y warranty drive isn't really good if you replace the drive in case of failure within 5 years anyway; the expected lifetime of either drives.
Summary:
Be aware that Seagate and WD both lowered their warranties to 2y and their spindle speeds to ~5400rpm for consumer level drives. You'll notice that the drive read speed has dropped to 190MB/s from ~210MB/s with the 7200.14 model range. The newer models compensate the gap with higher sector density per track and expanded cache.
