67 degrees after copying 1TB of data (2 hours of constant writes).

The drive most likely has a maximum operational temp of 55 (this is the norm for 3.5" drives).

I wouldn't buy one of these - still waiting for sensibly priced 3TB drives (internal), which probably wont turn up for a few months when the internal 4TB drives come out and there is competition.
