Pros: Very nice price when on sale and the performance has been okay. I have done a few stand-alone clones, the last of which copied 753 GB consisting of relatively large files (mp4 and m4v movie files). I didn't time it precisely, but I believe the throughput for the data transfer was in the neighborhood of 350 mbit/s, which I thought was acceptable considering the drives are 5400 rpm.
Cons: The Hiccup: When copying the above 753 GB from an on-line drive to the Source drive used for cloning, the docking station went off-line before getting through the first 100 GB. After cycling the power on the unit and resuming the copy process, it completed the remainder of the 753 GB without issue.
Other Thoughts: Probably not very well suited for "mission critical" applications, but should be fine for off-line and home use. Considering using these for external USB drives on a HTPC, but I won't do that until I am satisfied that the dropping off-line behavior is not a common occurrence.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The RMA and refund processes went smoothly.
Cons: Would not power up at all.
Other Thoughts: Hard to believe that this device was truly refurbished.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech K400 (920-003070) Black USB RF Wireless Standard Keyboard
Pros: The keyboard looks and functions like new, and there is no indication that it is refurbished or previously used. Tried it on two different PCs, and it was recognized and worked immediately on both of them. Using the separate left mouse button in conjunction with the track pad works well and makes navigating a breeze.
Cons: None yet.
Other Thoughts: It is currently connected to an HTPC and works well at a distance of 15 feet. Some comments about feeling cheap, flimsy, etc., seem somewhat odd to me. It is lightweight and compact, but I consider those good characteristics (and not cheap feeling), especially for HTPC use.READ FULL REVIEW
