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.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Cheap

Cons: DOA, wasted time diagnosing, impossible for WD to have ever plugged it in to "Re-certify". Bad business practice at best, borders on false advertising. Wish I could have got my money back but had to pay shipping to return and now I have a drive I do not trust with my data.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: 7200 rpm, 16 MB of cache, SATA 6 Gbps. Really low sale price.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The drive is a refurb and that's stated in the description. I cloned my Win 7 machine's hard drive with Acronis. No problems.

1 out of 5 eggs3 of 3 DOA

Pros: Pricing for some bench spares looked good. RMA'd and expecting replacements at some point.

Cons: Ordered 3. All 3 DOA.

Other Thoughts: All 3 were properly packaged. Came out of static wrap with worn WD stickers, smudges, residue from previously removed stickers, and build up of dirt/other material on 1.

Suspect these were 'incoming' for testing, not outgoing that HAD been tested.

Long time NewEgg customer, 30+ years technical exp..

Not the norm for NewEgg.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: none its terrible

Cons: my son built a computer with this hard drive for me- his mother ,also his mother in law and one for the neighbor. Each of the HD failed quickly. Mother in law and neighbor returned theirs , I did not and it is still sitting in drawer.

Other Thoughts: do not buy a recertified HD.

1 out of 5 eggsWill never buy another "recertified" WD HDD

Pros: None really. WD250GB drive cost $20.00 free shipping.
Very good deal. Except for 8KB in BAD SECTORS right out of the box!

Cons: Now I have to pay shipping to RMA this junk HDD to WD
and hope & pray I receive a functional HDD. Newegg won't replace it. Why should the customer have to RMA and pay to ship this back when he "trusts" Newegg........ All this kinda kills the "good deal."
