Pros: The drive has been working very well. I use it for my HTPC OS/Programs. It boots everything up with Windows 10 and a few other programs in about 3-5 minutes. Not much more to say other then its a solid HDD.
Cons: Why are you selling used hard drives and selling them as new. These are not new drives!!!!!!! The Manufacture date on these drives are 08/2011. I can not use a old drive to build a pc for a customer. 2 more drives going in the garbage. The circuit board on the bottom of the hard drive looks reall...
Summary: One of the hard drives I received failed during normal operation within 60 days. This also leads me to believe the seller is lying about the drives being new. New hard drives don't suddenly fail after 40 days of use.
Summary: I am quite a bit irritated that the Samsung SSD 256GB drive has lasted longer than the HDD drive. According to all of the reviews I have read, the HDD is superior to SSD for storage long term and reliability. I have found from my ownership of both products to be completely false.
Pros: HDD worked like a charm for around 11 months. No hiccups or data loss within the time specified in the comment.
Summary: Hard drive works fine. It came with an operating system already installed from a HP computer which leads me to believe it isn't new as advertized. After cleaning out and installing my system it seems to be functioning fine.
Summary: Fast shipping, sealed and work perfect but it was not brand new. Drive came with data on the drive. Complete install of windows was on the drive fron an HP machine. Im ok with it being used but seller needs to be honest with the description.
