Pros: Great SSD, first off. This SSD brought me from what I expected a 2+ minute startup to under 25 seconds. Great speeds, loads all of my applications in under a minute.
As far as I can tell, from my experience, it's been fairly reliable. I bought this back in February of 2013 and used it up until January of 2014, so almost a year. I recently upgrades to an 840 evo since, after re-reading the reviews, I became worried that my SSD would die. I'm more than likely going to give this to my parents for their build I'm planning - but I'm not sure at this moment.
Cons: None. Didn't die on me as of yet.
Other Thoughts: Remember: You're purchasing a refurbished unit. It may die on you a day after you get it, maybe two years. That's what happens with things. Great SSD either ways if you're looking to speed up your computer.
Also, this a 3.5" drive - not 2.5". So make sure you have a free 3.5" drive bay available in your case.
Pros: I bought this guy back in February, put installed 'im in March. I started this guy off on xUbuntu since I bought this guy before I had money for Windows 8. (And yes, people, Windows 8 is great. Bite me.) The driver was instantly recognized on both Operating Systems. Didn't even bother putting the disk drive in (I think it came with one, not sure at this point) and still worked fine. Not a complaint since. I've had continuous time with 4/5 bar connection on Windows. I've had a few down-times, but I think that is due to my ISP since the down-time was across-platform.
Cons: None at this current moment. Has lasted 10+ months and I'm expecting it to last another 10 months.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very good battery. Charged relatively fast. I have a Toshiba Satellite L505-ES5018, so if you want to get a new battery for it then this is the way to go. My old battery died and I wasn't able to use the laptop for about 2 or three months. This solved the problem.
Cons: Don't have any. The battery is great and is definitely worth it.
Other Thoughts: Definetly worth the $30 compared to if you buy it from Toshiba directly for $80 or even higher. Battery lasts about 3 hours with video watching, some gameplay, and general internet browsing.READ FULL REVIEW
