Pros:

None at all.

Cons:

I bought this drive for a future project, figuring it would work just fine (after all, it had been refurbished, right?).

When the time came, I unboxed it, hooked it up and discovered that the drive was completely bad. It would fail to operate correctly within a few minutes of power up and eventually stall the system. From what I could tell, the failure seemed to be with the drive electronics.

I was past the Newegg return policy and Seagate's (very) limited warranty on the drive, but I put in a call to Seagate anyway. The people I spoke with were very polite but adamant that nothing could be done even though the drive was just past their warranty by a day or two.

I finally threw the drive away after taking my frustrations out on it.

Other Thoughts:

I was very surprised that this drive didn't work straight out of the box. Seagate had changed the label to indicate it was refurbished, so I would have hoped they tested it afterward to be sure it worked. (Admittedly, this failure could have been caused by something in the handling process as it found its way to me. Given that the failure seemed to be electrical and not mechanical, though, I doubt it.)

I bought another refurbished drive from another maker at the same time I bought this one. That drive still works perfectly. I think I'll steer clear of Seagate's refurbished drives in future.
