eForCity 10-Pack CR2032 CR 2032 3V Lithium Battery Bulk Lot

3 out of 5 eggs 2nd battery was dead as a doornail 10/26/2015

This review is from: eForCity 10-Pack CR2032 CR 2032 3V Lithium Battery Bulk Lot

Pros: Inexpensive. Apparently, they are also just cheap batteries.

Cons: The first battery from the first strip had a very low charge, but it charged up.

The second battery that I removed from the first strip was dead as a door nail.

This doesn't bode well. I seem to be having some really bad luck buying things from Newegg these days.

Other Thoughts: I suppose that if you buy a 30cent battery, you are definitely going to get a 30 cent battery.

1 out of 5 eggs Two out of Three Bad 10/26/2015

This review is from: WD WD1600AAJS 160GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Cheap - But apparently you get what you pay for.

Cons: This is the second of three drives from the same order (09/11/15) that is being returned. The first one was sent back to Newegg (I purchased a warranty, but buying the warranty was useless as they just gave me my money back instead of replacing the bad drive).

This one is being sent to Western Digital. It is going to cost me around $8 to send it back. According to W.D., my initial W.D. warranty runs out in three days, yet Newegg says that the drive has a 90 day warranty on it. Somebody needs to figure it out one way or the other and stop posting false information.

The last drive is still working. For how long, I have no idea. I figure that it will end up bad as well.

I would NOT recommend buying refurbished drives being sold by Newegg, or anyone else. I have already lost a lot of time with these drives and I figure that the last one is a waste of time as well.

Other Thoughts: I am disappointed in Newegg. I bought a warranty thinking that if the drives go bad, they would be replaced. The way it looks to me is that if the drive does not fail, the warranty company makes a profit. If it fails, you just get your money back. They win either way. I won't be buying drives like this again. I have purchased more than $80,000 of computer parts over the years from a few different companies. I can find someone else to buy drives from if this is the best this place can do.

3 out of 5 eggs 2 out of three work 09/22/2015

This review is from: WD WD1600AAJS 160GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Cheap - Two out of the three I ordered three seem to work OK.

Cons: The first drive that I installed was defective. I checked it with the W.D. Diagnostic tool and it has bad sectors that can not be repaired. I should have checked it before I took wasted time installing the O.S.

The drive will have to be sent back.

Other Thoughts: 33% failure rate on this one order. Maybe that's why there is only a 30 day warranty on these drives - they are not expected to last.
