Summary: On startup the SMART report stated 1800+ power on hours with 22 power cycles. This is *not* a new drive despite the headline. The firmware is also a revision behind what my other used drives from EBay state. Overall the drive is satisfactory despite the deceptive headline. Verify the SMART data on receipt!
Summary: I bought four of the Western Digital RE4 2 Tb drives. Delivered quickly despite it being near Christmas. Three worked, one was dead on arrival. Amazon replaced very quickly. Sadly the replacement was dead on arrival too. Again Amazon replaced very quickly with a drive which works. Good points: Amazon were exceptionally efficient and helpful. Bad points: Two dead disks out of six. It's too soon to properly judge.
