1 out of 5 eggsNot refurbished, just used drives

Pros: 2 drives out of 5 purchased actually worked.
there was a limit of 5 when I purchased. glad that was there so I didn't end up with more of these lemons.

Cons: 3 out of 5 failed on arrival. two with bad sectors. one with bad head.
all the drives I received showed over 1000 days of power on time.
one had almost 5 years of time spinning.
one still had a partition and file system on it.
no way these were refurbished.

Other Thoughts: I don't mind a refurb, but these are just used pulls. I wish I had ponied up a little more for the HGST. They at least bothered to test and reset the hour count on their drives.

2 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

Pros: -Very low cost
-Name brand in HDD's
-Sata II High Speeds

Cons: -Breaks easily
-Refurbished cheaply
-Low quality
-Low space

Other Thoughts: I had this hard drive for two days before it died on me. This drive wasn't fixable using SeaTools because of the massive amount of bad sectors. I'm lucky it broke today because my NewEgg warranty lasts for three months. I'll return this drive for a replacement and buy a new drive later in the year as this one can't be trusted.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Reasonably fast and inexpensive. Just what I needed. I was a little worried about it being refurbished, but so far no problems whatsoever. I plan to complement it with a fancier disk later, but so far, great!

Cons: The clicking noise when it is accessed is noticeable, but not very distracting at all. It does not produce any annoying platter whine. Great value.

1 out of 5 eggsBuyer Beware

Pros: cheap

Cons: Dead On Arrival. I realize DOAs come with the territory when buying refurbs. However, be aware that these drives are likely OEM drives that have been refurbished by third parties, not by Seagate.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HDD

Pros: Great Seagate SATA HDD, especially the price.

Cons: The only issue is that it took a week to receive it.

Other Thoughts: Add free shipping to all orders so the long shipping time won't be so bad.

1 out of 5 eggsTERRIBLY LOUD

Pros: It works

Cons: It is so loud that I had to get rid of it. Never heard anything like it in a hard drive before.

I waited too long to install so it was too late to return to Newegg. Oh, well, I guess I'll take the hammer to it and throw it away.

1 out of 5 eggsTest immediately

Pros: Brand & Price

Cons: 3 out of 4 failed immediately on startup.

Other Thoughts: I suppose when you buy refurbished you get what you pay for. Test immediately on receipt - I wish I had.

5 out of 5 eggsA steal

Pros: It was cheap. Dirt Cheap. $29.99 with free shipping. It works like a charm on a mini itx Linux Mint 12 build. I was shopping for a build as cheap as I could go, just because I could. Reliable...so far. But then again, if it dies, I'll just buy another one and reinstall Linux.

Cons: Did I say it was cheap? I wonder how reliable it is. Then again, if it dies, I'll slap another one in at this price and just reinstall Linux.

Other Thoughts: I did this with a mini ITX build. This hard drive cost less than my motherboard...barely. I'm a cheap guy and sometimes I pay for it. For 29.99 I was willing to take a chance. I don't keep my important documents on the hard drive, I back them up somewhere else. I've suffered catastrophic hard disk failure one too many times.
