Summary: It worked for many years, not sure why it died. Was using it as a backup with a docking station. Got a Rosewill USB 3.0 docking station that doesn't work with my USB 3.0 ports and think it cooked the drive.

I was concerned when I purchased that I paid too much, it was at the time after the floods that killed pro...
