Dead on arrival. Recertified, not new.

Frank Rich, Amazon
20 February 2014
  • Summary: Tried it in two laptops, just to be sure. Weird sounds from the drive, not detected by bios. Then, upon closer inspection of the sticker attached to the drive, noted the drive is "Re-certified." Nowhere in the product description did it say it was going to be a re-certified (ie used) drive. Mine arrived from Storite, I only mention this because the seller for this item seems to have changed.

Why Buy?

Douglas E., Newegg
30 September 2013
  • Summary: A failed hard drive that is out of warranty after ONLY 90 days is just too big a risk to take to save $10.
  • Pros: Inexpensive.
  • Cons: 90 day warranty? If it is fully reconditioned and recertified by the manufacturer they should warranty the drive for at LEAST 1 year.

  • Summary: The reasoning behind this rating is Walmart's terminology for Hard Drives. There two standard types, 3.5" and 2.5". Not portable, laptop, desktop, or other descriptions. I wanted two 3.5" drives and got 2.5 drives. I kept them and ordered what I required from a different supplier. This is the first time that I have been disappointed by Walmart.

IT IS HAS BROKEN MY PS3!

fiona k warren, Amazon
29 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought this after a lot of careful research and reading other reviews. I wanted to upgrade my son's 12gb PS3 so I thought it would be perfect. I followed the instructions but when it gave me an error message saying the disk had to be formatted, I clicked OK (the only option!) and it stuck on 0% completed for hours!!!

  • Excerpt: зависания начались уже месяцев через 5, но особого внимания тогда этому не предал (хотя по гарантии мог бы попробовать ноут сменить). Шёл с ноутом Packard-Bell ts-11 , когда первый раз задумался , что проблемы могут быть в харде, обнаружил 5 бэдов, сейчас перед смертью было 46. Почитав отзывы других юзеров, понял систематичность проблемы. Мой совет если есть возможность - не покупайте, если уже куплен, сохраните важгую инфу и проверьте на бэды.
  • Pros: Перед смертью дал скопировать инфу.
  • Cons: проработал всего 2 года, да и то с глюками.

Festplatte gut - Rechnung fehlt!

H. "Hans", Amazon
13 January 2014
  • Summary: Die Festplatte ist recht gut, nur wenige schwebende Sektoren, für einen relativ alten Laptop gekauft, muss genügen. Weit trauriger ist, dass der Händler "Quantum Wireless" keine Rechnung beigelegt hat und auch keine Rechnung per Mail geschickt hat. amazon.de ist auch nicht in der Lage zu helfen,da es um einen ausländischen "Marketplace-Verkäufer" handelt - also Vorsicht für alle geboten, die eine Rechnung benötigen.
