1 out of 5 eggsFailed on initial use

Pros: Price.

Cons: Failure on 1st use.

Other Thoughts: I tried to save money. Mistake. This refurbished drive would only partition out to 18gb....not the 250 it is supposed to be. Have attempted to drop & recreate partions and/or reformat to no avail.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat storage drive

Pros: works well for a storage drive. Hadnt had any problems out of it yet. write pretty quick, doesnt hang up like my other hard drive

Cons: had to create a partition on the hard drive before i could save anything on it. I could pick the drive up fine, just couldnt see it in windows. Had to boot up my windows 7 cd and install a partition on it before i could save anything to it...and then i still had to format the drive in windows 7 before it came online. first time i ever had to do that, but at least i got it to working.

Other Thoughts: never had to install a partition on a hard drive just to get windows to recognize it. But hey, whatever works i guess, lol. Ill be back to report on it if a problem arises

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HD for security DVR

Pros: Excellent HD for the money. Very quiet and smooth running. Also runs cool.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: This HD was designed for audio/video use. Maybe not good for computer use but it is excellent as a video recorder.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh.

Pros: Cheaper than your average bear.

Cons: Trouble in paradise.

Other Thoughts: For some reason, the hard drive will not boot with an operating system installed on it. It works great as a slave hard drive but I continue to have the problems when it's a master.
Sending it back to W.D. for the warranty work since Newegg doesn't accept Refurbs as returns. A gamble that I knew and took from which I lost. :(
