1 out of 5 eggsNever buy refurbished

Pros: Very fast when it worked.

Cons: Died right after warranty expired.
Lasted 93 days (right after warranty expired).

Other Thoughts: A very fast drive until it died 3 days outside warranty period (warranty expired on Nov 18th, drive died on Nov 21st). Can't even access the drive now. Thought that a refurbished drive from western digital was a safe bet. Learned my lesson here; do not buy refurbished drives, even from a company that is usually very reliable.

1 out of 5 eggsGambled and lost

Pros: cheap

Cons: Crapshoot

Other Thoughts: Gambled on buying a refurb and lost. bought WD hoping a good company would still produce a good refurb but crapped out on month 7. disk check runs with no bad sectors but windows says to replaced HD. still running but a pop up to back up my files repeatedly comes up. Just waiting on the crash.

5 out of 5 eggsDecent HDD at Great Price

Pros: Great price, great replacement drive for those on budget

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I purchased this refurbished for a customer who did not have 60+ dollars for a new hard drive. Its been almost about 6 months now and the customer is still using it with no problems.

5 out of 5 eggsQuick and clean

Pros: Worked perfectly.
Good price thanks to being a refurb.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Wife dropped her laptop and the drive started clunking. Unsure of if that was the only damage done we selected the most inexpensive drive to fit in. Happened to be this one.

3 out of 5 eggsOK Drive

Pros: Brand Name
Inexpensive
Appearance like new
Works

Cons: Significantly slower than I expected for a WD Scorpio Black 7200 RPM drive.

Crystaldismark sequential read speed was 82 MB/s. Write speed was 64 MB/s. I have 5400 RPM drives that benchmark better than that.

On my 750 gig WD Scorpio Black the sequential read speed is 119 MB/s and the write is 110 MB/s.

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive to clone my 750 gig (but not near full) WD Scorpio Black drive to so should the larger drive fail, I would have a plug-and-play backup clone while ordering a new (larger) drive.

It works fine insofar as a home for the clone, and for just over thirty bucks it's not a bad deal, but performance is so sluggish that I would return it if it could.
