Seagate BarraCuda ES.2 ST3250310NS 250GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner

Pros: None since it is unusable.

Cons: Refurbished HDD arrived today. Unboxed it and installed it into my working system with 1 240GB SSD booting Win 7 Pro. Powered on the system, but I don't hear the refurb HDD spin up; just a faint actuator-type sound that recurs roughly every 2 seconds. Tried different SATA ports on the mobo with the same result. Doesn't Newegg and/or Ecom-direct check these things for at least basic operation before sending them out??? Guess the RMA process is in my future.

Other Thoughts: Price on this item dropped another $5 since I purchased it, but buyer truly beware of this item. New items from Newegg have been a good experience for me, but not this one. I purchased this HDD to complement my SSD while I wait for some new Seagate models to become available for my RAID array. This HDD won't be part of that array, but I did at least expect it to power up and function in the system as a data drive.
