Summary: My original Drive was throwing errors for lots of bad sectors. The smart data indicated a failing drive, so I decided to take a chance on this refurbished drive and boy am I glad I did. This drive was packed well and shipped fast. Drive performs as new and has low hours. I am very happy with this purchase. The smart data showed a healthy drive. I formatted EXT4 and loaded Linux Mint 12. I was up and running again in about 30 minutes.
Summary: I've got several of these things. They were purchased for a mere $99USD each. Considerably cheaper than other drives of the same capacity (which usually have less cache, are louder, and slower!)($110-135). These hard drives are faster than my other ones, have a larger cache, as well as being a lot quieter. I can't hear them in my case. For the price, these things are an amazing bang for the buck.
