1 out of 5 eggsWarning! 3 out of 4 drives bad.

Pros: None. Not truly recertified.

Cons: Another Bad drive found. A 3rd one that I had bought from Newegg. Tested it and the same problem recertified poor quality. I had a forth one that is very good out of the total of 4 that I had purchased. I am lucky that that one was alright. Compared it to the other 3 and they are without a doubt bad.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Drives!

Pros: None! I had bought 2 of these from newegg and they are both defective. Would be great if they worked? Took 5 Mins just to do a quick format and the read write speed is at barely 5mbs They are of very poor quality. I am surprised that they even formatted and said that the partition was healthy. NOT!

Cons: I hope that W.D. will replace them as they are just a few month old that I had them stored. Went to use them and found them to be bad. everyone needs to test them as soon as you get them, then they can be stored for later use.

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.
