5 out of 5 eggsSo far, so good!

Pros: Delivered on time in a very secure package.
Hard Drive looked good physically
My bios recognized the drive accurately on first try - no need to configure jumpers
Windows XP formatted the drive and installed the OS with great speed.
Have been using the hard drive now for about 5 hours under my normal day to day use, all drivers reinstalled and all programs restored with no errors.
No clicking noises or anything out of the ordinary
Drive reports good speeds under stress tests and normal temperatures

Cons: No cons come to my mind. If the drive fails before the 30 day warranty, I'll see what can be done to resolve it, otherwise it was a good deal at a mere $12.

Other Thoughts: So far this hard drive has been performing very well. Windows XP 32 bit SP3 runs smoothly and I haven't had any disk errors yet.

1 out of 5 eggsHHMMMM

Pros: I have had a personal account with Newegg for years and they do an excellent job. Even if an issue arises, they are quick to fix the problem. I have ordered a lot of items from them and it always arrives on time.

Cons: I recently started a computer business and opened a business account with Newegg. I did a comparison on this drive between my two accounts and found the drive cost six dollars more with my business account, one would think you would get a discount not have to pay more. The model number and description are exactly the same but the Newegg item number is different. I'm hoping this is just a small oversight, but it's something to be aware of.

Other Thoughts: I ordered a different Seagate drive through Newegg using my personal account that did not even show up as an option to purchase using my business account.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked for a few days

Pros: Really good price for the capacity and was packaged real well. Goot here in no time. Worked, took OS and worked for about a week, they started making squeling noide then died

Cons: I don't know who is recertifing these drives but it seems qualty control is not one of their strong suits, Died after about a week of operation. Now it wont even power up so Sea Toolls wont even reconize it. Waited to long to get iit installed and Seagate, the owners oof Maxtor diid not have a warrenty for this drive, Refered me back to place of purchase

Other Thoughts: Called new egg about a month and a half of ownwership. They sad the drive was probaly not even being carried anymore. I told them with my adventure with Seagates inoersonal call system, no one picks up the phones there. They offered me a gift card for $10.00 for the cosst of the drive and an additioonal $10..00 to help me buy another IDE drive as this one was on sel for $9.99. Too expensive to ship back.. I'm very happy with New Eggs solution to my problem. I think this is the first bad item I got from New Egg. There cust. support was great. There the best for all your computing needs and it's not there fault the people who recertified them did a bad job. New Egg has the best customer service in the computing online companys. There solutions are always top notch. Very happy with the overall outcome to this problem I encoutered. Thank you New Egg!!!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: perfect for fixing those old windows xp computers your mom still wants to wait to load her desk top on. i have reinstalled two old computers with these hard drives and had no problems.

Cons: if you are buying this you should build a new PC instead but it will do what it is supposed to. for real though buy parts from newegg and build a new ATX or ITX you are letting the PC world pass you by!

Other Thoughts: windows xp is almost gone anyways stop lying to yourself and build a new windows 8 PC it cheaper than you think!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Perfect!

Pros: Worked perfect right out of the box. Very quite. Very very cheap! Works perfect!

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I was refurbishing a computer that only had a 20GB HD so this was a HUGE upgrade for it. Now the computer has plenty of space to store anything. Plus, for under $10 can you really complain?

4 out of 5 eggsGood on 3 of 4 drives

Pros: Good model of hard drive - I received four of the Seagate U series. Good price to get a desktop computer running again or upgrade an old one. No regrets here.

Cons: Bought four drives, three worked perfectly, one was unusable due to write errors. At the low price it isn't worth shipping it back.

3 out of 5 eggsthey arrived???

Pros: they arrived, they do register

Cons: I bought 4 of them and did a scan test with HD Tune. What the results were was that 2 of them had areas that were reading very slow, or basically were spots that were about to go bad. There was also a lot of seek errors, read errors, and data correction errors between all of them, along with a lot of sectors that were reallocated. For anyone that does not know, that is basically where the drive sees a spot that has gone bad and designates a new area to use for the data in that spot.

Drive use time. pretty much all of them have had the numbers of power on days in the thousands.. so basically, very well used. One of the 4 drives had slow reading spots scattered through the whole read surface area.

Other Thoughts: The drives did survive a full scan test, but I would not say that any of them are reliable for long term usage. Basically, if I get a computer that has a trashed drive, and it needs a new one, and I am planning on just giving it away, this drive is fine to get it up and running. and that is what I will use them for. I would not trust using them for long term use in any of my computers. In fact, I would never have let any of these drives go out if I was the manufacturer due to their condition, but for the few dollars each that they cost me, they are not worth sending back so I will use them.

as for the shipping.. What I can say is that they all arrived, in one piece thanks to new eggs well packing, but not due to my crushed, ripped, and majorly damaged box that the shipping company destoyed. Basically, it came in, in the condition where it looked like they dropped a 50 pound bag of potatoes on it, then stood on that bag, then gave it a few kicks as hard as they could. That is the best way i can describe it. That is why I was surprised that any of them actually even registered. Basically, I have to give newegg credit for packing them good enough that it survived the transport.

Personally, I have used a lot of Seagate drives in the past and I have had good luck with them, but this batch. I just dont know why you would even think about trying to resell drives in this condition. Guess the company (seagate) is hard up for cash. So, do i recommend that name brand.. yes, I have had good luck with them. Do I recommend this refurbished drive.. no.. Poor quality control.
