2.0 out of 5 stars Likely refurbished disk.
Reviewed in India on January 25, 2017
The received disk was an old one and likely to be refurbished.
The product is 7 year old being manufactured in 2010. As per the SMART data it has been used for close to 6 years.
Another thing to note is the disk is of 5400 rpm and not of 7200 rpm. It is optimized for sequential data access like in DVRs. Hence it is not the best choice for desktop computers.

As of now, the disk has no issues on being installed on an ubuntu system. Lets hope for the best.
