OWC's 1.5TB Toshiba Aquarius for 15" Unibody MBP

I have pretty high storage needs, which are constantly increasing. Fortunately, the largest drives available seem to be scaling with the amount of space I can occupy. The 1TB disk I currently have sitting in my superbay is making me nervous with its loud seeking. I'm going to replace it for sure, but it seems as though 1.5TB laptop disks are not yet readily available. I noticed that Other World Computing is selling this drive , Toshiba part no. MQ01ABD150, but I can't seem to find any info outside of OWC. I know they carry some specialist products not always readily available elsewhere, but am I right to be skeptical of this drive? Anyone know anything about it?

Yeah, there are 2TB drives out there from several manufacturers in the 15mm height form factor, but those won't fit MBPs or most other normal laptops. This one seems to be the only 12.5mm high drive I can find

Has anyone tried this 1.5TB Toshiba Aquarius drive? I can't find any reviews on this drive.
