Refurbished/Recertified Drives -- Not NEW

kdirtrider, Amazon
3 September 2013
  • Summary: Warning!! Buyer Beware. These are refurbished/Recertified drives. They come in new boxes. They appear to be new and are sold as new but they are not. They even went through the trouble of placing a barcode over the recertified marking on the label.

Thanks for Nothing

Randall R., Newegg
5 January 2012
  • Summary: Hey Western Digital if you built a dud stand behind it and at least ship us a new dud
  • Pros: Hard to find many pros on this purchase. I have dealt with New Egg many times and will in the future. But Will not buy a Western Digital product right away
  • Cons: Western Digital was all about selling these drives. Rma one out that failed after 2 months and they ship you a used drive. That is what they think of their customers. I think enough of my customers to never buy Western Digital again

Lasted 53 days

Paul K., Newegg
6 May 2011
  • Summary: Live Chatting with a newegg Reg as I type, so I will let you know how it goes in 20 seconds... ...OK. Newegg is RMAing a replacement so I don't have to deal with Western Digital Refurbed QA. WESTERN DIGITAL Quality assurance is HORRIBLE at best.
  • Pros: It is 250Gb. It is made of metal and plastic. It shipped in a box. I like turtles. (All PROs)
  • Cons: Lasted 53 days from date of purchase. Died 23 days out of return to Newegg. I HAVE HAD OVER 4 WESTERN DIGITAL DRIVES FAIL IN 4 DIFFERENT SYSTEMS over the years.

Anonymous, Newegg

newegg dropped the ball

Stuart M., Newegg
4 June 2010
  • Summary: Do not know if these drives are all PATA or come both ATA-6 and PATA. Newegg does not show the connector and sadly and I stuck paying return shipment due to there error.
  • Pros: I am sure the drive is great as I have always had good luck with WD.
  • Cons: Problem is the drive Newegg shipped is not an ATA-6 but is a PATA and will not ever fit into the laptop is was panned for.

Lots of storage, horrible performance

Dallas H., Newegg
23 January 2010
  • Pros: Lots of storage
  • Cons: Worst drive performance since the floppy. Using on an iMac 7 (aluminum Core 2 Duo, 4GB Ram, 2.4 GHz), as an auxiliary drive upgrade from a WD 500GB External Notebook Drive. Finally had to ditch this drive for archive only, and go back to the WD drive for active use.

Drive failed after 6 months!

William Y., Newegg
9 September 2009
  • Summary: It would have been a nice drive if it were more reliable. I went to WD site to RMA it but then saw their "Customer Loyalty" alternate offer giving discount on buying your choice of a replacement drive.
  • Pros: One of the few ATA-6 large capacity 250GB laptop drives available for older laptops with EIDE interface.
  • Cons: Unfortunately this drive died in my daughters Toshiba M55 laptop after only 6 months of light usage. She complained of slow response time on her laptop for awhile building up until the catastropic failure where it would not boot due to corrupt boot sector, then it would no longer be recognised as...
