Used hard drive sold as new

David S., Newegg
26 September 2014
  • Summary: The only reason I haven't returned it was because a cheap old IDE drive is fairly hard to come by and it had low wear on it. I got an old HP Pavilion DV4000 laptop for free that I converted into a Smoothwall that needed a new drive and this fit the bill.
  • Pros: This one works and was available.
  • Cons: Buyer beware! Looking at the drive it was evident that this drive was being sold as new but was previously used/active for over 8000 hours (2 years) based on the the drives SMART logging and firmware. This drive is way over priced for an old piece of used hardware.

Good for a few months

FB, Amazon
14 December 2013
  • Summary: Installed this in a netbook in July, and it failed by November. I can't even get SpinRite to see this harddrive, and I've tried it on multiple machines. I'm not sure if I got a bad unit or what, but this is a terrible lifespan for a hard drive. Be cautious with this one.

WD takes blame for customer competency

Matt T., Newegg
2 December 2013
  • Summary: It is a shame the Western Digital has to take the blame for their customers incompetency. When this drive was released new it was the standard 12.5 MM. Now that disc platter density has increased the standard hard drive height is 9.5MM.
  • Pros: Good drive. Have owned a few of them.
  • Cons: No problems.

Do NOT buy

David W., Newegg
24 October 2013
  • Summary: You have no idea how long this drive is going to last, the seller is reselling used drives and not even properly refurbishing OR testing them. Proper test procedures would NOT result in the drive arriving with someone else's data on it!
  • Pros: Its PATA and still available
  • Cons: The drive I received is clearly a drive taken from an existing laptop and resold, it still contains a bunch of data from a Panera Bread employee! This tells me they did not test the drive even, simply pulled it out of a machine and resold it.

Fit into my MacBook Pro just perfect

Alex Martinez, Amazon
5 August 2013
  • Summary: I needed additional hard drive space on my laptop because my music & video files seemed to be growing at an alarming rate. The 500GB HD that came with the laptop just wasn't cutting it anymore.
