4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works great, no problems with it whatsoever. Excellent deal for the price.

Cons: High amount of remapped tracks but it is a reconditioned drive so something like that is to be expected. Doesn't seem to affect it much if at all.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap price. None really.

Cons: It clicks at random times, even when its idol. If you are copying in the moment of a click it stops and prompts you saying it cant read/write to drive. At first I didn't know what this random clicking was, thought maybe a wire was brushing the cooling fans, but after buying a 2nd one and trying to format it in a new PC the moment I turned it on it just clicked really fast and wasn't recognized by the BIOS. Now I know this random clicking is this drive. I don't feel it will make it a year, hope to be wrong.

Other Thoughts: I don't feel this drive is a good buy if you have to send it back. Especially some sent it back a few times. I payed 31 for this one then the other I payed 29.99 and had to spend 11.62 shipping to send the 2nd one back. I RMA it and if I get another DOA one I'm tossing it and cutting my losses. I feel strongly this drive wont last the year so I am not placing any important data on it. Writing this review it has clicked 12 times. Thinking maybe I should have asked for my money back but If the next one works and doesn't click it will make the cost somewhat worth it. I feel a bit robbed and it was a really good price for a HD with 320GB.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Product, Unbeatable Price

Pros: It's a 320GB hard drive selling for a very good price. The free shipping was also nice.

Cons: It's uses an IDE connection, which hasn't been used on motherboards for quite some time. This greatly limits the product to those with really old motherboards or motherboards with IDE 'legacy' connections.

Other Thoughts: The product is very old, though I wouldn't necessarily say this is a con. The date of manufacturing on my sticker says January 30, 2004 but it's been refurbished so it's impossible to tell how old the parts actually are. It arrived in great condition and works very well. Since an IDE ribbon connects two devices, I'm considering getting another one.

5 out of 5 eggsBuy with confidence..

Pros: The price!

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I'm either a VERY lucky Newegg customer.. or I just know what I'm doing (I'd like to think the latter).

I have purchased at LEAST a half dozen HDs from Newegg in the past and I have never gotten a ''lemon''.. not ever.

Due to the recent exorbitant price increases in HD prices I decided to buy this ''recertified'' model this time around and I must say I'm more than pleased.

This HD arrived packed as well as a retail one has. I am using it for my boot drive (XP, W7 & Ubuntu) because I want to give it a workout before the warranty expires. HDTune pro reports all SMART parameters are just fine (health excellent) and I set the acoustic management settings to recommended, and it's quiet as a mouse.

I've done several formats, repartitions (my fault.. not the HDs) and OS installs in the past weeks and it is performing admirably. Nice to have a PATA133 as well as my mobo supports them (4 IDEs, 4 SATAs) and I've never actually utilized one.

Thanks Newegg!

3 out of 5 eggsIn time of need

Pros: 320 GB for a fair price.
It works.

Used in conjunction with a SSD

Cons: Connects through IDE
Can hear the disk spinning, clicking, etc.

Would not trust as a boot drive.

Other Thoughts: You can purchase a SATA to IDE adapter for under 15 bucks.

3 out of 5 eggsI wouldnt trust a 6-7 year old drive

Pros: cheap

Cons: your taking a gamble

Other Thoughts: I did not buy it here, but I have one of these drives, mine says made in 2004. Although it still works, I wouldnt trust buying one of these 7 year old drives then expecting it to work for many more years. Even the one in their photo has a date of 2005 if you look close.
