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.
Excerpt: Dont skimp on your hard drive. The hard drive is the single biggest bottleneck on desktop performance. Opening programmes and manipulating files is not governed by your processor your RAM or (as someone once said to me) by your uber-expensive graphics card. Lesson from this; put some thought into which one you buy, and dont go for the 'green' versions of drives if you want a decent amount of performance.
