  • Pros: It's OK if it's working.
  • Cons: It's been working fine until it died after 4 years and 2 months.It's not very good because I have 9 years old Hitachi and 7 years WD still working.

OK

  • Summary: My drive arrived with a power on count of 74 and 29,000 power on hours. Since it was made in 2010, it was probably still spinning when they boxed it. It also came with a FAT format and Free DOS. Worst of all it has 68 reallocated sectors, but that has been stable for a week now.
  • Pros: Price
  • Cons: Not refurbished

  • Summary: This thing runs android-x86 quite smoothly and was a great option for 25 or so dollars, just don't expect flawlessness on the initial setup for some of the drives I guess.
  • Pros: Works. Runs ext3.
  • Cons: Not out of the box. Had to use my osx86 installation to recognize and format the hard drive.

  • Pros: Has always been as fast as I need it. Much faster than my external drive.
  • Cons: I've owned this drive for about 2 years and it's about to die; SMART STATUS BAD. I've never had a HDD die that quickly before.

  • Summary: I'm sure the drive will work fine. I just assumed that it came with both the Sata cable and power cable. Price was cheap and matched same model I was trying to replace.
