4 out of 5 eggsMixed results

Pros: Inexpensive storage.

Cons: Bought two, one failed after initializing. Newegg return process is painless! Best in the business. Refurb drives are nice to have on hand to get a computer back up and running in a hurry. For systems requiring higher levels of reliability you might consider a retail drive, but I have had good results with refurb drives from several different manufacturers.

1 out of 5 eggsnever worked

Pros: referred to Newegg.com by a very good computer source.

Cons: I was sold a bad hard drive. Still have the bad hard drive.

Other Thoughts: Purchased this hard drive, thought more was wrong with the computer. Finally paid to have a computer store look at it. The computer tech advised hard drive bad.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Sally, we are sorry to learn that the drive you purchased was non-functional on arrival. We recommend replacing your in-warranty drive via our RMA procedure, either online or by phone.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after a few months

Pros: It was cheap, it worked for a few months.

Cons: It died just outside of the manufacturer's warranty. I should have read the specs closer, only a 90-day warranty on a refurbished hard drive?!

Other Thoughts: :(

1 out of 5 eggsWestern Digital Refurbished

Pros: Worked fine for five months, then didn't

Cons: Started giving me issues last month and is now completely dead. I guess I was asking for it buying refurbished instead of new, but I kind of expected it to last more than five months.

Other Thoughts: I usually love newegg stuff. Arrives quickly and I've never had any trouble before. That said I think I am going to avoid refurbished items from now on.

Manufacturer Response:

We appreciate your feedback and apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced with the WD Blue, as this is not the typical experience with the product.

Regardless of the drive's status, be it recertified or brand new, we understand your situation and will gladly replace your in-warranty drive, as we stand by our products and their associated warranties.
