5 out of 5 eggsGreat choice for a hard drive!

Pros: This is a refurbished hard drive at a great price (I bought it as a Shell Shocker deal for $18.99) and is currently serving as a backup drive in a friend's computer. I was able to install and format the drive without an issue and it works great!

Cons: None whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: Western Digital continues its reputation for producing excellent hard drives. They are my first choice when it comes to hard drives and NewEgg is my first choice for a vendor for these hard drives as they have provided excellent service and support in the rare instances when I have received a defective WD hard drive.

5 out of 5 eggsDrive

Pros: Nice lightweight WD hard drive. Used Parted Magic's smart utility. Shows no errors at all, and no use previous to now.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: My last refurb drive from Newegg turned out great. Hope this one lasts as long as that. Given the very positive test results, I don't see why it wouldn't.

1 out of 5 eggsWD Refurb drives unreliable

Pros: After two months, one of five drives still in use.

Cons: Four of five drives non-functional or unreliable.

Other Thoughts: I wonder about the meaning of "manufacturer recertified."

5 out of 5 eggsCheap, used but looks like new.

Pros: I was quite surprised when I loaded up Crystal Disk Info on this drive, it was NEVER booted up prior to being powered up on my system, logging a total of ZERO hours of operation, it showed no errors or bad sectors.
Decent speed for a mechanical drive, I got roughly 133MB/s Seq read and write. Cheap, got it for only $20 which was a good deal.
This drive had the standard return policy (At the time of purchase) so I was rest assured if anything went wrong, I can return it for my money back within 30 days.

Cons: No documentation of ANY kind, nor any cables, be prepared to have your own to use! Could have been a higher capacity. Not worth knocking any eggs off.

Other Thoughts: While not a con it is worth mentioning that this thing has to be formatted before it will show up in my computer in windows, after that it is good to go. I got this to shore up some shortage of drive space on my SSD, this works great where I can toss some programs that do not need the speed of an SSD. This is not slow by mechanical drive standards either, which pleased me greatly.
I got a refurbished drive previously and it had roughly 3 years of CONTINUOUS hours of use, this one by comparison is brand spanking new.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's a Hard drive!!

Pros: Low cost, 250gb, 6gb/s(not sure I believe it) 7200rpm and it works at least so far.

Cons: Quite slow for 7200 rpm 6gb/s drive my older Seagate 3gb/s drive is faster. it's a Refurbished item which I haven't had much luck with so far.

Other Thoughts: Against my better judgement I bought this drive even though it is Refurbished and so far it's ok..I bought a refurbished tablet on here and it died the day after my grandson opened it for xmas..I'm hoping I fair better with this refurb. The tablet was one day past the return date so if your refurb item is showing any signs of failure at all DON'T wait ...SEND IT BACK ASAP!!!

3 out of 5 eggsDon't expect it to last forever.

Pros: It's a refurbished hard drive... what do you expect? It did its job for a reasonable amount of time(for a refurbished drive).

Cons: Don't expect it to last forever. Mine has been great for a year and a half, but I think it has finally died.

Other Thoughts: I usually have good luck with western digital, but not a ton with this drive. I still have some WD IDE drives that are over 10 years and they work fine. This is a great temporary drive but for a main driver i recommend one of their new drives!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised

Pros: I needed something cheap for a Linux server with a USB printer. I installed it in a desktop Micro ATX PC case using 4 screws for the chassis. You can't beat $20 /w free shipping on a 250 GB SATA 6Gb/s drive.

Cons: I couldn't find anything physically or emotionally wrong with this hard drive.

Other Thoughts: I have bought refurbished hard drives before on NewEgg. I haven't had a problem with a single one. I think most people who give refurbished drives bad reviews possibly mishandle them during installation. Mine came shipped in a box bubble wrapped and sealed in a static-free bag.
