5 out of 5 eggsTested and True WD blue 500GB

Pros: Was refurb. but looked new and came in cool WD protection pack that looked that it would protect the drive from any fall.Worked perfect,good price,and performs great as a external back-up for my laptop.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: Excellent service and delivery time by Newegg as usual.All the refurbished products I have bought from Newegg to date have worked and looked flawless.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

Pros: Using it as my storage drive and couldn't be happier with it. Runs quiet and fast. A bit faster than my last Caviar Green Sata II drive.

Cons: Not for this price!

4 out of 5 eggs1 out of 3 DOA

Pros: Cheap drives and perform well when they work.

Cons: 1 of the drives was dead on arrival. So I knocked off 1 egg for that.

Other Thoughts: It has been my expirience with recertified items (especially hard drives) that 1 in every 3 won't work. This is true with the 3 I bought. One was out of the box dead. BIOS in 2 PCs didn't recognize it, didn't even hear the disk spin up. Hope to get replacement soon.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Arrived virtually dead on arrival. Disk would spin but a scan indicated that major swaths of the disk were covered in bad sectors. Returned for a replacement... hopefully the second one does better.
