Summary: This is the same model HDD that came in my Lenovo V570. I've run it almost daily for four years and it's still going strong. I never abuse my computers, but I don't just surf the net and check emails either.
Summary: This replaced another 5K750 drive of the same kind which had died. The drive from FinityIndia arrived in a minimal packing envelope inside a electrostatic-proof bag with silica dehydrating packet. Was it refurbished? I really don't know, but for the price I'm guessing yes.
