1 out of 5 eggsWD1600AAJS Junk

Pros: Has the Western Digital name on it.

Cons: Purchased 4 of these drives in April, and already one has failed. What Junk!!!!! There was nothing on these drives indicating that they were either refurbished, recertified, or remanufactured. They just look like used hard drives, and probably are. 2 of these drives have HP OEM stickers on them. Just another indication that these are just used hard drives.

5 out of 5 eggsPassed all drive tests with no errors

Pros: Nice price
Excellent packaging for shipping. New bubble pack shipping protects drive
Good performance

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Bought this for repair on an older system with Pentium D. The guy did not want to put a lot of money into the system and I wouldn't blame him. With the sale and discount, I was able to do an image and replace his hard drive for under $50.

Ran full diagnostics on hard drive and passed all tests. Total hours on drive was low so the drive had not been used that long prior to factory refurb.

1 out of 5 eggsOne Dead, The Other Dying

Pros: None, really.

Cons: I gambled on a refurb drive and lost. I've never really liked purely negative reviews, but there isn't really anything good to say about this purchase. One came DOA and the other makes tons of grinding noises. Not even going to bother with trying to get the situation rectified- too much of a hassle.

5 out of 5 eggsGood drive, inexpensive price

Pros: It's a solid, good drive. Tested the blocks, all seems to check out. The value for it (as a refurb) was good. Plugged in and via windows Vista Ultimate worked out of the box.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: This was an added drive for an SSD system for a relative. They needed data storage since they were downloading little casual games and glutted the SSD I provided with the system (down to 2% available space). Plugged it in, moved and redirected some files, and she was away.

Intel Core2Duo.e6750, OCZ Vertex 60GB HDD, GT8800, 4GB DDR3.

4 out of 5 eggsBought two one was DOA

Pros: One works and haven't really messed with the other. Since i bought them to do RAID 0. First time this has happened in the 10+ years i have bought stuff from newegg

Cons: Bought 2 one was DOA, in the process of getting the bad one replaced.

Other Thoughts: First time in years ive had any type of issue like this with newegg and not really phased by it since it so rare. in the process of getting it replaced as i write this. Also this is why i buy an extended warranty on refurbished items

1 out of 5 eggsif it was a wd

Pros: always bought wd for it's reliability

Cons: order wd blue 160gb hd but new egg sent me a Seagate barracuda st3160318as

Other Thoughts: never tried a Seagate but going to now, have a computer to build and can't wait for an exchange, (customer is getting antsy) if this thing is reliable then i'll have to start thinking about Seagate harddrives
