3 out of 5 eggsSlow

Pros: This drive was cheap and has many GBs.

Cons: This drive is slower compared to other Western Digital Green drives.

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive to upgrade from a 1TB WD Green secondary drive. This drive does work but Windows Media Center loads Movie and Music icons from this drive considerably slower, although playback of media has no skipping and plays normal. Additionally when copy several large files to the drive the overall transfer speed drops to less than 1mbps. The 1TB WD Green drive I replaced did not have this issue. Based on my experience with this drive I will not be purchasing a refurbished drive in the future.
