Nice price, not sure I want to trust storing precious data on a refurbished drive.. Tough choice.

yeah, I'm a big fan of refur'd stuff, but not an HD.

And a Seagate refurb at that. I'll use them for test machines but not for data I don't want to lose. Having said that I have several Seagate 40GB refurbs I bought 5-6 years ago that still work fine.

I dunno about that one. The reported failure rate from buyers leaves me with the willies. :shock:

I didn't see it was the "blue" -- never had one of those. But I do have maybe 6 WD 1TB+ drives and no problems. Even 2 "green" 500 GB.

The Blues are pretty good drives, mostly the old AAKS series. Yesterday Newegg had the 2TB Green for $99.99 with a discount code, today it's back to $119.99. That's the first time I've seen a 2TB drive for under $100.

All HD refurbs Ive gotten from Seagate and WD (the only two I use) haven't failed on me in practical situations... I had refurbed Raptors from WD but I had MONTHS of runtime at a time on it between every reboot for almost 2 years before the needles started making a little bit of excess noise. Then I got new ones.

I say go for it, refurb usually has treated me well.

Which series Raptors?

There is a Dell surplus supplier selling the 74GB VelociRaptors for $89.99 brand new in the Dell packaging. I picked up a pair for a boot array and they're faster than anything else I've tried including SSD drives.

74gb raptors back in the day. I had them in RAID1 for a long time. Also, something worthy of note, the cooling system I had in the server was quality; none of this weak little fan crap. Water cooling for everything. I dont know how fan cooling would have affected longetivity.

Okay, I take it the noisy ones without the heatsink. I had a few of those and didn't care for them. The VelociRaptors are much better both for noise and cooling.
