Pros: I figured it wouldn't work with anything that drew too much power, but it kept disconnecting all the devices I plugged into it randomly. I made sure to disable any power saver settings that might disable it, and have no problems with a different usb 3 hub.
Cons: One of the ports plastic innards pulled right out when I unplugged a device from it leaving the bare metal pins behind. It ended up damaging the pins inside my usb cable, and that port is now totally useless, vs only semi-useless like the others..
Other Thoughts: Don't buy it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Hitachi GST Touro Desk 3TB USB 2.0 3.5" External Hard Drive 0S03290 Black
Pros: Inside is a brand new 7200rpm SATA drive for about half of what a bare drive is going for now.
Cons: Takes some work to get the drive out of the screw-less enclosure
Other Thoughts: Use a flat sturdy tool to wiggle your way into one of the corners, then work your way around to pop the panels off on the front and back. It will take some effort to pry and pop the panels off, but once they are off the drive should come right out. Just watch you don't bend the SATA to USB converter when pulling the bare drive out. It is attached with screws into the drive itself but there is a clip wire attached that needs to be disconnected first. The drive has nothing that physically connects it to the enclosure, so don't worry about giving the old heave ho when prying the panels off.READ FULL REVIEW
