Looking through the holes in the enclosure, the drive used is a factory recertified Western Digital. Some people may not feel comfortable with a refurbished HDD, so if that's the case for you, you may want to go with an official Microsoft HDD at the higher price, or make your own DIY HDD (Google search: "xpgamesaves how to make low cost" or "how to make xbox 360 hdd").
If you are upgrading from a smaller HDD and want to transfer a significant amount of data, you will need a data transfer cable.
The only drawback here is that the drive will not play original Xbox games on disc as it comes from the seller. It is missing information in the partition 2 that allows for emulation of original Xbox titles on disc. It plays online and anything downloaded from the games marketplace just fine, the issue is only with original Xbox titles on disc. For the majority of people, this will not be an issue at all (since most people are not going to be playing old titles on disc). However, if this is an issue for you, it is easily fixed.
For a tutorial on how to restore partition 2 to allow for the play of original Xbox game discs on your 360, Google search: "xpgamesaves how to create partition 2 xbox" or "digiex xbox 360 partition 2". Both of those locations give straightforward tutorials and point you at the program and file you'll need to do this. You'll need a PC and a data transfer cable to most easily accomplish this.
Overall, I can't complain at all about this generic HDD. Tons of space for cheap; great upgrade. I'd give it 5 stars if the seller had stated upfront it's a refurb.
Today is September 30, 2015 and I turned on my console and received a message to update some system stuff. I clicked yes to do the update and received a message that I didn't have enough room which I thought was odd. I looked at my system setting to see how much room was left on my hard drive only to see that it was not listing any space. Next to the hard drive icon was the words format or reformat. I took the drive off, and reconnected it only to receive the same results. I took it off again and blew out the connections with canned air... still received the same results. I still had my original drive that came with my console and connected it. It worked fine, so the problem was this drive that I purchased and apparently only lasted me just shy of 6 months.
There are many positive reviews that greatly outnumber the bad so I bought this in hopes that I would be in the majority of positive experiences. Unfortunately, I was not and I may potentially have lost saved games files from these past 6 months unless I can find a way to recover my saved game files by opening the case and connecting the HD to a computer.
My advice is this, you may get lucky and get one of the hard drives that has worked perfectly fine for all these other people but you may fall on my side of the fence where your drive fails after a few months. Ask yourself are you willing to possibly lose files and be in the hole for whatever dollar amount you spent on your hard drive? If the risk and dollar amount are worth it, then go for it but be aware you have no guarantee, THIS IS NOT an official Microsoft hard drive and you can possibly be right where you started but with less money.
In short, don't spend more than you're willing to lose, and be prepared for the possible loss of saved files as well. Maybe take advantage of cloud saves. Hope this review helps you out.
UPDATE (10/19/14) : Tried to scan the hard drive thru a couple of file recovery applications, no luck. When I opened up the case to get to the drive I found that this drive is from a company I never heard of. This is the information off the failed drive...

A word of caution to anyone looking at replacing HD's... MAKE SURE YOU SAVE EVERYTHING SOMEWHERE ELSE FIRST.
