Summary: I contacted customer service via the chat window and they told to to wait 3 to 7 business days for them to get back to me with their decision on what they were going to do? DUH, wrong item, REFUND? Nope,wait. Been a new egg customer since it started,never a problem until now.
Pros: great,if it was the correct drive.
Cons: the drive was mislabeled from WD . I ordered 3 and 2 were correct but one is 200 GB. It was still factory sealed,and has the 500 GB label on it. So,YOU, may get one of these also!!!
Summary: The drive I got was WD2003FYYS, okay good. However there is 2.4 years of 24/7 use on the drive (21149 hours). The Warranty goes out in a year. There is no mention that this will be a used drive and no meantion the warranty is anything less than the 5-years that is expected from western digital.
Heavily used drive sold as new. No WD waranty when the listing stated "5 Years". Check your SMART data for total hours used.

Summary: Ordered two of these drives from Aeon Micro that were heavily used and had no warranty from Western Digital. Listed as New with 5 years warranty. The S.M.A.R.T. table on the drives, outside stickers and Western Digital warranty checker state: hours 1394 s/n WCAW32746976 start/stop count 20...
Summary: These are USED Drives!!! The listing is marked as new, they come packaged "OEM" style but the package seems home made and not factory. The contacts seem discolored just like when they have been exposed to the air.
Summary: Well, if you think you are buying cheap WD RE4 HDD, you are wrong, just like me. The model # is MB2000EAZNL. When I googled it, it's HP HDD, not WD. This doesn't bother me at all. What really bothers me is the power on time is 22,784 hours (31 months 19 days 8 hours).
Summary: As mentioned in other reviews, if you buy this hard drive be sure to verify that the advertised 5 year warranty is valid. The one I received was not packed like other new Western Digital drives I have purchased, so I immediately suspected it being not as represented.
Summary: Another old/new drive. These drives were made in 2010!!!. I'm hoping that despite that, it will work for near it's warranty period, which when new, was 5 years. I have no warranty, other then Servertechs' alleged 3 year warranty. That is only over the phone, and is not stated on the invoice.
