5 out of 5 eggsAmazing quality

Pros: Was 15 bux...=+1 egg

As stated by others it was an enterprise class drive = +1 egg

Makes a fantastic nvidia shadowplay/HD editing drive = +1 egg

Arrived in a day despite economy shipping at no charge = +1 egg

Cons: I had to reinstall my entire 4 year old, 6 disk array because as it turns out..a power cable became unplugged from an SSD, while i was trying to fit this bad boy in my tiny liquid cooled case...But that's not the drives fault.

4 out of 5 eggsRefurbished: WD RE3 WD2502ABYS

Pros: Cheap for 250GB "Enterprise Storage" Drives

Cons: Not sure if these are truly "Refurbished" or simply "used".
The "Power on Time" for the 2 purchased show 3.19yrs. I have purchased other "Refurbished" hard drives and their Power on Times had been reset? to 0.
These run hotter then other drives. Run over 40c. I typically look for temps just over 30c (heat shortens life)

Other Thoughts: New these drives come with 5yr warranty if not "sold to a system manufacturer." They are dated Feb 2011. So, theoretically they would be under original warranty..but WD shows these as "sold to a system manufacturer"
They are not stamped Refurbished as other drives I have purchased are. So again, I wonder if they are simply used.
For the money, and if safely used. These can be a good deal. I use mine for 2nd "Backup" drives in systems.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Ordered three, none were DOA. One even had extremely low power-on hours (around 600).

Cons: One threw a warning for high reallocated sector count. Shouldn't be a problem though.

2 out of 5 eggsjunk

Pros: cheap

Cons: drive arrived I plug it into my computer and no big surprise to me, it has bad sectors.

Other Thoughts: I have had bad luck with WD drives in the past, this is the final nail in the coffin. I am no longer purchasing hard drives from Western Digital.
