I just seen and read this review. The RE is better but also $50 more each and for mass storage on a desktop total overkill.
I look for quality, a 5 year warranty is nice but I do not want to be forced to send it in.
MTBF is actually quite a joke, drives are lucky if they can reach 80K hours without the media decaying or the heads getting worn out.
The SE is between the reds and the RE it would appear but one MAJOR issue I have read is they do not have your standard SATA connector, the two holes for curent III spec with the locking clasp is not present.
These drives are designed for backplanes.
I have a 4 port backplane on my Lian-Li case so this is not an issue or if you were to put one of these in any external case.
Still would have been nice to see the ability to use locking cables on these drives as a choice.
