Good product for the price.

Pros: Budget Priced, Easy hookup/installation, Universal, Quick shipping.

Cons: It is only an HDD, so don't expect much as far it speed is concerned. I'm using it with Windows 10, Intel i5, and 8gb of RAM (Desktop Custom Build), and it takes about 2 minutes to go from shut down to 'full speed'.

Other Thoughts: If I were to redo my current build, I would've gotten something like around a 300gb HDD and paired it with a 100 or 200gb SSD. I would get a SSD solely for a boot drive now, but don't want to go through the headache of moving the OS over.

:(

Pros: It's a hard drive.

Cons: It's a REFURBISHED hard drive. The whole "buy new" checkbox led me to believe it would be, well, new.

Other Thoughts: If I would have known that I was going to be receiving a refurbished drive, I would have purchased one that WASN'T.
