Do not buy these from any 3rd party amazon seller!

Summary: I've bought two sets of 4, one from Yobitech, the other from Servertech inc. Both times, they were listed as "NEW" drives. What did I get in the mail? HEAVILY used drives! drives had upwards of 200+ TB of data moved across them, and had been in use for over 3 years.
Summary: newegg shipped this drive to me defective. asked for rma, sent drive back, just to learn that they will not replace the drive because they didn't sold the drive. If that is the case where do I stand right now? They sold me a brick and I am on my own!
Pros: Unable to determine because hard drive was shipped defective. This review is actually for newegg customer service.
Cons: newegg customer service is a big cons. If newegg send you a bad product and you ask for an rma and then tells you when you sent the product back for rma that they don't sold that particular product, then who's fault is it????? How would you feel if you just spend $300 for a brick hard drive!!!!!!...
Summary: As others have reviewed, I thought I was buying a new drive as it was listed as "Condition New NEW BULK 30 DAYS WARRANTY" but came with a non-standard sticker on the back with "Texas Electronic Recyclers". It's not worth my time to return, lesson learned.
and I got a bunch of garbage about paying 20 percent restocking fees from the seller

Summary: Suspect... I had a few of these drives, same model number, each show 558G when installed. I buy this drive and it shows only 546G. It was supposed to be a brand new drive, it would not work in my RAID-10 set since it shows it is much smaller than the other ones I have.
Summary: Ok, I was pissed when i received this thing. NO WHERE ON THIS SITE DID IT SAY YOU NEEDED A SPECIAL CORD TO INSTALL. I purchased this for my FIRST PC build. It was a mistake. I didn't know that this HDD needed a special cable to plug it into the MOBO.
Summary: Betreibe 5 Stück davon im RAID6, drei davon hat es trotz Klimatisierung im Abstand weniger Tage nach ~45.000 Betriebsstunden erwischt. Da mich der zeitnahe Totalausfall von drei Platten, die alle das gleiche Fehlerbild zeigten, sehr irritiert hat (wurden nichteinmal vom Controller erkannt) wollte...
Conclusion: GOSTARIA QUE O MERCADO LIVRE TIVESSE MAIS RESPONSABILIDADE E RESPEITO COM OS USUÁRIOS CORRETOS QUE USAM O ML PARA BONS NEGÓCIOS. NÃO SIMPLESMENTE DEIXAR O CLIENTE A VER NAVIOS DEPOIS DE RECEBER SUA COMISSÃO.
