Pros: Cheap price and sold by Newegg... fast shipment... The drives so far look good... I have not done a full test on them...
Cons: Be aware that these are not "Refurbished" drives... they are USED PULLS... the drives I received have dust etc... still on the bottoms of them and marks etc where you can tell they were pulled out of used systems... they have been wiped but other than that they are still used...
produced in 2007 and running since until sold in here

Pros: I always buy refurb of this model WD800JD because there is no way you can get them new. And I always knew that these drives have never been refurbished, they are always a pull from data center, but they have been polished with an oil to make them shiny.
Cons: These drives have been produced mid 2007, considering pulling the data from the SMART structure saved on the drives, it revealed that most of the drives have been running between 45000 hours and 50295 hours. That is 5.13 years to 5.74 years. Being produced in 2007, this means these drives have been running since 2007 until they get pulled right around the date newegg acquired them.
