5 out of 5 eggsI like this drive

Pros: Once I downloaded the software I was able to transfer almost everything from my prior WD HD. Some protected files would not transfer. This is my 6th hard drive from Seagate and each of the previous devices have performed well and are still operational after three and four years.

Cons: I waited a week but it was worth the wait. Drive continues to function well. i can't advise you of any real negatives at this point.

1 out of 5 eggsBE CAREFUL!!!

Pros: Low Cost

Cons: - Quality control/assurance is SEVERELY lacking
- May not work
- May only show partial storage available

Other Thoughts: I ordered these on a flash sale to compliment my new gaming PC in a RAID 1 config. I held on to them until all my other components were bought and installed. First time booting up, one of the drives went "whir-clunk-whir-clunk". The other drive read only 27MB of 99MB available, when it should read 99.9GB of 100GB available, relatively. I removed both drives to inspect them on my maintenance computer for PC repairs. My first mistake was not immediately doing this, to begin with. One of the HDDs was completely shot ("Whirry McClunkerson"). The other drive had a read error and would only register 99MB space on a 1TB drive. My maintenance computer couldn't even tell it was a 1TB drive. It thought the HDD was a 1GB drive. All of these items should have been caught and corrected in the refurb process.

As someone who runs Quality Assurance inspections for the military/DoD on computer and other cyber hardware, I know how to do my job right, according to mil-spec, DoD policy and commercial guidelines. These were two examples of how NOT to do a good job in maintenance and quality assurance. These HDDs should have never left the shop, and they sure as h*** should not have been sold to any consumer. I am extremely disappointed in Newegg's quality assurance. Now, since I'm over the 30-day return window, I have to deal with Seagate's warranty bureaucrats. This oughta be fun. >:-[

Moral of the story: get a HDD external dock and ALWAYS check the product for functionality the day you get it. Don't wait for untimely surprises. I'll never trust a refurb'd item from Newegg ever again.

5 out of 5 eggsAn HDD that functions as an HDD

Pros: -Works as any HDD should
-Not loud, can't hear it over anything else
-Got it at a steal for $35 for a refurbished edition

Cons: The only con I can think of is that the refurbished edition has a metal non-removable plate that says "Refurbished" engraved into it. It's nothing to take an egg off of, I mean it WAS in fact refurbished...but it just points out how cheap you are. haha
