I like MyPhoneExplorer, and it's associated android app, MyPhoneExplorer Client.

I also use AirDroid over wifi, directly from my within browser.

If all you want is to transfer files from PC to your Android phone via USB cable, you can do that without any additional software.

I always do that personally. I just plug in my phone to the PC via the USB cable, and the storage on the phone shows up like hard drives, and I copy files to and fro.

Apart from AirDroid already suggested, I found Dukto to be really good, to transfer files via wifi. I had tried it recently.

This is true provided the PC system has already had a driver that supports the connected USB device. The Samsung S6 now I'm using connects to Windows 7 via USB without the need to install a third party driver.

I have another Android mobile device (Redmi Note) which failed to connect to Windows via USB. Its manufacturer doesn't provide a working driver for it and I have had to rely on AirDroid. But the same mobile device can connect to Linux system with no additional driver needed. In this case, the Android device seems to work more happily with Linux system than Windows.

For my old Samsung phone, I had to install Samsung Kies, which installed the drivers for the phone. I guess newer Samsung phones might not have that problem.

I guess it depends on the popularity of the brand too. Although Xiaomi is now quite popular in China and India, but I think it isn't recognized as a brand yet in the whole world.

My Nexus phone was able to connect without needing any drivers.
