Pros: I bought 2 of these drives in 2011 to replace my two laptop drives. Had them in raid 0 for the longest time and then I built a desktop computer and swapped them in while running at raid 0. Never had any issues. Bought some WD blues because of their 1TB capacity, I'm still using these right now in...
Cons: Capacity, but seriously, if you are on a budget these will do.
Summary: Would I recommend this product? Only if you really need a drive cheap and it was for a short time. Would I buy again? No
Pros: No problems with setup and was a cheap replacement for old failed drive.
Cons: Lasted just under 1.5 years so even if I had purchased the extended policy that wouldn't cover it. You get what you pay for? I've never had hdd die this fast before, but it was a refurb so I guess I got what I paid for.
Pros: Installed without a hitch. The HD had less than 5 hours running time on it. S.M.A.R.T. gave it a clean bill of health. Keeping my fingers crossed. Bought this to keep an old laptop relevant for another year or two.
Summary: Wd isn't my first choice but Toshiba (hgst oem) doesn't have such small sizes. Oh well.
Pros: Price is ok, but needed 150gb drives for a server for raid. So anything higher would haven't been a waste. Had these before in use drives and laptops. They aren't great drives, the slightest bump and they crash.
Cons: It's wd. They aren't great at stability in the 2.5" range. Will probably replace the, anyways with hgst drives. But I took a gamble for 40 bucks.
Summary: These is nothing wrong with buying refurbish hard drives. Just check the drive when it arrives with crystal disk info software. If its more than 20,000 hours or any errors just send it back. NE will pay the return shipping just insist. They are good people
Pros: Its speed is 90 to 120Mbps. Its a WD Black drive. 7200 RPM. Its a refurbish drive but checked with HDtune and Crystal Disk it had less that 2 hr run time and 10 power ups. No errors or warnings. Such a great deal. Refurbish drive are a gamble but thanks to smart data you can fine what it has been...
Cons: None at all. Completely satisfied brought new life into a old laptop for $30
