Pros: Price was awesome! No trouble recognizing in BIOS or in Windows via eSata. No errors or anything thusfar!
Cons: Drive is very loud, spins up really fast and loud, also clicks when called upon. Hard Drive Sentinel says the drive has been on 1357 days and started and stopped 48 times. That means the drive is 3.71 years old, however the description DOES say it's "refurbished" . Who's to say it wasn't rebuilt without the cache cleared?
Other Thoughts: For the price I can't complain, drive is being used as primary storage and ALL data on the drive is backed up on a clone drive anyways. Drive did not look used, not sure how much "refurbing" Hitachi does to the drive internally but they definitely reconditioned the outside. If I get a few years out of it, I got my $50 worth! Taking an egg off for the noise and an egg off for the alleged age of the drive.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SINGLE 12 SEALED CAR STEREO SUB BOX SEALED BASS SPEAKER SUBWOOFER ENCLOSURE
Pros: Sturdy design, 3/4" MDF construction with a 1" MDF baffle. Carpet is nice with no bad seams and terminal cup is of good quality. Joints are glued tightly and so far, no loose joints.
Cons: Only thing I could see that could have been better was the seal job on the joints. Seemed they skimped a little on the sealant, I ended up doing a bead around some of it myself.
Other Thoughts: I build custom enclosures, primarily vented ones and recognize good craftsmanship when I see it. Was cheaper for me to buy this already carpeted, with a 1" MDF baffle than it would have been to build. The price and the good material and assembly trump the lack of sealant, so will give a full 5 eggs! :)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Western Digital WD 320GB Elements SE Mini Portable USB 3.0 External Hard Drive
Pros: Had the drive around a month now.... No issues converting it to FAT32 for the PS3. Transfer speeds are to par with USB 3.0, no errors or dead sectors. Drive performs pretty quiet for a physical drive as well.... Biggest pro, the price! Got it for $27.99 on sale, really can't beat 9 cents a GB for a portable USB 3.0 :)
Cons: Only one I can think of is there was no box or manual with the refurbed model. Not at all a big deal, not worth taking an egg off for!
Other Thoughts: Was amazed at the size and speed of this drive in relation to the cost. As long as it lasts a decent amount of time, I got my moneys worth!READ FULL REVIEW
