2 out of 5 eggsDying...

Pros: Low price, Western Digital

Cons: It is dying on me.. After not quite a year and only a few months of real world use..

Other Thoughts: Guess refurbs aren't such a good idea after all. Too bad the warranty is only 3 months.. Oh well..

3 out of 5 eggsRefurbed WD-250GB HD

Pros: Works, a little slow even for an IDE Drive. Good price though and saved me from building a new SATA Desktop.

Cons: Never been a big WD fan, always had trouble with their HD. They "ALL" die within 12 to 18 months, used or new?

Other Thoughts: Shoul've waited and bought a Seagate, they were on sale a week later....figures.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: None

Cons: Failed within 2 minutes of installation. I plugged it in and turned the computer on and within two minutes the hard drive was making banging and clancking noises and the computer couldn't even recognize it as a hard drive.

1 out of 5 eggsWD Refurbs = Run Away

Pros: IDE ATA and Price was only $41

Cons: Died less than 1 year old

Other Thoughts: I've had a lot of WD Refurbs go bad on me. I was in a pinch and needed it for a logging server thinking it would give me at least a couple years. . . Died after 10 months.

1 out of 5 eggsWas DOA

Pros: Never got it to work

Cons: I guess it was my fault for not testing. I bought it to eventually upgrade my mothers computer. It sat on a shelf for a year and when I went to actually install it, the drive had the clicks of death. Looks like it was DOA.

1 out of 5 eggsWD 250 IDE Drive

Pros: Newegg advance shipped replacement, egg allowed refund on both drives, thanks egg.

Egg 5 stars

Cons: 1st drive error 0007, 2nd drive error 0007, [ read element failure ] wd tech support wasn't surprised of 2 drives with same test result and failure, tested on another pc with same result, apparently no qc control on reman drives, newegg support line getting harder to make contact, time consuming, too much hassle.

WD 0 stars

Other Thoughts: long time user of wd drives with little problems thru many years, egg didn't have a new ide drive in wd, will have to look other places and hope to find one.

wish I could leave 0 rating.
