Hard drive was sold by "YoKool" listed as new and shipped by Amazon. The drive that was delivered was marked with a manufacture date of 2010. Thinking it might be new old stock I connected it to my computer and checked the SMART data which showed a power-on time elapsed as three years with 102 power cycles. Amazon was quick to refund my money but have yet to remove the incorrect listing.

I was sent a drive that had scratch marks on the side, like it had been scuffed up being pulled out of another system. So I'm pretty sure it was a used drive. It's manufacture date was 2009. The drive works, but it seems that these drives should be labeled as used or refurbished.

This drive is probably not for you if you have no idea what Bulk/OEM means in the product title. It means that you'll receive just the hard drive in a plain cardboard box - no fancy packaging, no manual, no screws and NO CABLES whatsoever. You can save a few bucks by getting this packaging if you are assembling your own machine (in which case the motherboard and power unit likely include the necessary cables), or if you are replacing a SATA drive. If you are adding a drive to your Dell or HP or whatever branded machine, you will likely need to buy a SATA data cable and possibly a SATA-IDE adapter power cable.

For me the drive works great out of the box. It's a fast and moderately spacious drive at bargain basement price.

I ordered this drive via Prime in order to complete a rush job for a new customer. The drive I received was packaged and advertised as new but in reality was USED as indicated by the caked on dust you would expect to find on a drive from an old computer.
I filed a return with Amazon and sent the drive out. I don't expect an issue with the return but this really put me in a bad situation.
I don't feel it's Amazon's fault because they only store and ship this item. I think the drive I received is the USED one YoKool intended to sell as NEW.

Purchased 5 drives each came in a bubble wrap shipping pouch and a antistatic bag which was closed with a sticker. Typical WD drives come in a sealed package. Also Typical WD OEM drives come in a brown cardboard box. The undercarriage of the drive had dust around the edges which makes me believe that the drive was wiped for dust but not well.

The drives sticker shows a manufacture date of May 2009.

Plugged the drive in and ran an Active File Recovery SuperScan to reveal it had been reformatted at least once before. In one of the recovered partitions I found an "Application" folder, a "Document and Settings" folder, a "tv2clientce" folder, and a bunch of files.

I am very dissatisfied with this seller and Amazon for wasting my time. Ill be submitting the return shortly. If you are selling used product it should say so! Also this is very expensive for a used product.

Bought this drive because it was cheap, and it would be the perfect size to use as a temporary drive to clone my existing HDDs to SSDs, but the drive arrived dead. Wouldn't format at all... Chkdsk won't even work on a "RAW" drive that can't be formatted. Refunded. Going to buy a more expensive, bigger drive that I can use for something else after I'm done with it instead. Should have thought about that before seeing the cheap $$$ of this drive. Don't bother.

Used to upgrade my HD TiVo Series 3 a few months ago. So far so good. Don't notice any additional noise, either. Great price.

P.S. If you happened to use one of these to upgrade your TiVo, note that when the hard drive is imaged and replaced you must do a full reset. Otherwise after a lengthy partial reset it will still complain ambiguously that there is an error and you need to call support. The problem seems so result from the newly formatted disk having a unique ID that the TiVo doesn't trust. Simply doing a full reset is the only thing that will solve that.
