They are a "Certified Repaired HDD" just like the review below about Top Gear

Summary: If you order from Databug, please know these are not 'NEW' drives. They are a "Certified Repaired HDD" just like the review below about Top Gear. Certified Repaired hard drives are not the same as retail new - they are refurbished.
If you buy from "Top Gear, Inc", you'll end up with a "Certified Repaired HDD", and it will most likely fail immediately.

Summary: I received a "Certified Repaired HDD" that immediately failed and screwed me in the worst way. This notification is helpfully written in small print on the hard drive label and conveniently left out of the product description, describing it as "New" and "not refurbished".
Summary: As others have mentioned, these drives are total garbage. I have never had a hard drive fail like this -- in less than two years it is just done. What's worse is that they claim it is out of warranty. Really? A hard drive isn't guaranteed to last more than 2 years? GFY!
