5 out of 5 eggsFine, Just Fine

Pros: Price was right, compact, quiet, no separate power brick

Cons: None to speak of, holding up just fine

Other Thoughts: As a refurbished drive, I assumed if this was going to fail, it would be in the first 2 weeks of use. No problems.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat WD Element

Pros: Bought it for a friend to let me remotely transfer data to clean and maintain his computer; have had no problems with it. Was leery as it is a refurbished one but according to him and from where I sit it works like it is supposed to. Comes in handy when you need to redo a computer and do a back up of everything. I looked only at it because it is WD and took a chance. Wow nice work and it was delivered early ... great going Newegg.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: i will consider the refurbished products again. Good product.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I always buy refurbished because they've been fixed and retested by a technician whereas the normal product run seldom gets tested. My only comment is to ground the unit before attaching it to your system because Chinese static is still present when you connect it, which which with my system shuts it down instantly like it was shot. After doing this a few times the problem is now nonexistant.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsFast USB 3 Drive

Pros: Western Digital, Small, Quiet, USB 3 & USB 2 with the same cable/port.

Cons: None that I can tell.

Other Thoughts: This drive has excellent USB 3 performance.
Average of 73 megabytes per second file transfer speed.
With a burst rate of 126 megabytes per second.
This is on par with a standard internal HD.

USB 2 performance is standard.
Average of 32 megabytes per second file transfer rate.
Burst speed of 27.7 megabytes per second.

I am very pleased with this drive!
It is exactly what I was looking for.
