Drives from BuyAccessories aren't new drives.

Summary: Bought four drives from BuyAccessories and they were three retail drives with warranty that had expired in 2012-2013 or an OEM drive without retail warranty. Other vendors may have drives without expired warranty, though the ones from BuyAccessories weren't new, as they were in non-OEM boxes and non-OEM static bags.
Summary: I'm using these to upgrade some workstations that had older slower drives. These fit the bill nicely. Not a huge amount of money, but large enough and fast enough for daily use.

Summary: Needed this hard drive for my OLD Dell computer with Windows XP, at least to salvage what was in my computer before buying a new one and updating all. It worked great with Best Buy Geek Squad help!!
Came unformatted. Searched and found a writeup online to see it and format it.

Summary: It works fine and was instantly recognized as a new part of the computer, although I had to format it before I could use it or have it show up as a drive on the 'My Computer' screen. I had to search and find a writeup online in order to first see it, and to format it. Since it's what I wanted and works well I am very happy with it. A good sized drive at a good price.
Summary: Hard drive was D,O.A.. Admittedly, it was an old & used hard drive, but, I've purchased such hard drives before. But, they were of a different make - Hitachi for example- & they performed well ,which, is why I've decided to give the WD Blue 160 a failing grade.
