    Pros:
    1) Easy to use product. Simple clean interface. Amazingly user-friendly!
    2) Free and Open Source
    3) Multiple Encryption and Hashing algorithm available.

    Cons:
    1) Buffered Read and Buffered Transfer Rate were almost halved after TrueCrypt FDE was enabled :-(.
    2) Access Time for large file (250+MB) increased by 11%.
    3) The initial encryption of the 120 GB HDD took 2 hours.
