Giving initial tests to my purchase, I was really surprised that S.M.A.R.T showed the HDDs were 2 to 3 years old although I thought I had ordered items listed "NEW." I double-checked my order and it said "NEW." I immediately contacted the seller to tell that I was not going to replace my 2-year-old existing HDDs with 3-year-old used ones. The seller agreed to refund in full.
Beware! I believe most, if not all, sub-500GB HDDs listed "NEW" in AMAZON these days are scam and they are actually used pulls from old systems.
My old PC was loaded with only what I need to stream movies or to watch something off an Internet and I added a WiFi card. It has now replaced a nice laptop that sat in the TV room to be used rarely and it was like getting a new computer. All-in-all I'm pretty happy with Western Digital and for about 10 bucks each I can't complain about the price for used. Formatting them was easy and installing was also a breeze. If you're not one for used items then pay some more for new but I'm not all that confident that these older ones might not outlive some new ones. They get 5-stars and the only downside is that they're 80GB but since I have two installed and one for backup the size hasn't been an issue for me. If I had newer towers I'd likely be going with new ones. Lastly, be sure to search carefully on the model numbers or you may be thinking it's a SATA and it's really an IDE because they very slightly in the numbers. As an example, the WD800JD is SATA and the WD800JB or the WD800BB are IDE. I have tried using the converters but my Dells don't read the HD when I do so.
The Western Digital 160 GB Caviar Blue SATA was highly rated so I know it is of high quality and the price Amazon had it for was way to good to pass up so I didn’t. I could probably return it as I don’t really need it but I feel very secure knowing that if I get another HD loss in the 5 minutes it takes me to swap out the hard drive I am back in business. I was given almost 10 days for delivery, it got here in 5. I love this shopping at Amazon, it is becoming my choice to get the things I need at a great price and a very short wait.
Update (26FEB13): Well, bought two and the first one lasted ten months and has died in month 11. Second one (backup) is now installed. Was unavailable so my friend paid almost $500 for a service tech to come out and install/setup the raid. Unfortunately have to use this exact drive for replacements. Hope this second one is more dependable. One of the originals is going on three years. Will update if WD does not replace without a fight.
Update (25AUG13): OK, now down to one star. Another one died. We are now keeping a back-up drive on the shelf for the inevitable. Stinks to have to do it this way since it will burn up warranty while gathering dust but can't take a chance with a business.
