Summary: I am not sure if those HDD are used instead of new but when I connected mine it was on RAW format and was full of virus, trojans that infected my computer laptop and then was a message with an DEEP WEEP url .onion link telling me that I should pay certain quantity of money to stop the infection.
and when I got it all put in it was making horrible grinding sounds

Summary: Well what can I say I thought I bought this new, and when I got it all put in it was making horrible grinding sounds. Long story short these "new" hard drives are just drives that have had all the data removed on them.
Summary: Same as another guy upon installation it made a terrible grinding noise but i returned it before it brokw because i could not stand the grinding noise they still havent sent a new one and im waiting
Summary: This drive is useful as a secondary drive to supplement an a smaller SSD (I got the Samsung 850 EVO 120GB). I use this drive to store most program files, music, movies, etc; with the SSD holding the OS, and some key programs such as Google Chrome, Steam, and MSOffice.
