Pros: still going strong after about a month of usage. The health of the drive is rated as "good.' Speed is pretty much as expected from a hard drive just make sure you use a usb 3 cable for best speeds if you use as an external.
Cons: Little on the noisy side. I use it on an external dock on top of desk so it is near me but even so it does make noise particuarly when writing data. I have other drives that are near silent. Might not matter if placed inside a tower. Also the noise isn't terribly distracting. Just enough to be noticeable during periods of long use. I tend to notice it and just as quickly forget about it.
Other Thoughts: Using this for extra storage for my ever growing steam collection. So i occasionally leave it running all night for those large downloads. Haven't had any trouble with it all. Just remember with any refurb you take your chances regardless of ratings. Its all a matter of is the price worth the risk. Will update if the drive begins having problems but for now i'd say worth it. Oh and fyi i got it from newegg flash for $45 with free shipping.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Got this so i could transfer large game files between pc's. With the size of games nowadays my 32gb flash wasn't cutting it and larger flash drives aren't worth the price. So i got this and paired it with a spare 90gb drive i had and boom, loads of easy portable storage.
Cons: Sometimes if i connect the primary usb header before the power header the pc might fail to detect the drive. Reconnecting the main cable fixes this and connecting the power cable first prevents it all together.
Other Thoughts: Some pc's just don't deliver enough power through a single usb port causing connection drops when transferring data. The extra usb plug for power helps with that issue. You may not always need it but no its nice in case you do. Especially when you can't afford to have the connection cut out during a transfer.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RHB-220 - 4-Port USB 2.0 Hub
Pros: Cheap and reliable. Perfect for low power devices such mouse, keyboard and flash drives.
Cons: Not usb 3 but knew that so no eggs lost. But everything should be usb 3 now. The egg was for the very short cord. You would need and extender if you want to run it from your tower to your desk.
Other Thoughts: The length of the cable would make this better suited for laptops unless you have an extender handy. I use mine for my Fire cause it only has one lousy usb port.READ FULL REVIEW
