Default Geeks 500GB USB2 External HDD Kit

This product is exactly what you would expect; a great deal. The hard drive has a ton of space to work with and would be of great use for the working person that needs to transfer lots of large files from work to home and back again on a consistent basis. The fact that the hard drive is refurbished, I would not necessarily place my most valued documents on it for backup. But hey, you never know. This drive could last you a whole lot longer than the six months it is covered for under warrant…

"Now, you obviously have to realize you have a refurbished hard drive, thus the cheap price, so no point ding-ing here."

pretty crappy price then

the enclosure is also far below my Icy Box enclosure:

-no E-SATA
-no vents for air circulation
-too much plasic
-harder installation plus risk of damaing cables when bending them
