This controversial deal is back. Yes, they are server pulls, with 10-35k hours on them, not regular refurbs. See previous threads on this deal for this drive at Fry's and Newegg for more details. But they are good drives, if they survive the shipping. My first one arrived DOE, thanks to Fry's poor packaging (see below), but the second one is fine. They paid for the return shipping, and they agreed (with a bit of hassle) to send a new one at the same price. (They also had to adjust the shipping, since the discount got rid of the free shipping.) This seems to be pretty standard. So be aware that it may take a while to get a good one. But it's a great price when you do. Mine had 16,000 hours and 53 power on/off cycles on it from the servers, but no reallocated sectors or other errors.

Be sure to check the hard drive right away with CrystalDiskInfo and/or other disk checking software if you get one. Fry's is shipping these out really poorly, especially for hard drives. Since they are server pulls, they are shipped bare by Fry's itself. They come wrapped in an anti-static bag with just one medium sized piece of bubble wrap around them in a larger Fry's box. That Fry's box is shipped in another larger fry's box with some bubble wrap. The problem is that they're not using much bubble wrap in the inner box, so the fragile drive is free to bounce around, and also can get pushed to one side of the box, giving little protection and leaving it at the mercy of bouncing around on all of the stops of UPS shipping.

Note that while the item page says that free shipping is available, that's because without the promo code, the item is over the $35 needed for free ground shipping. You'll have to find something(s) for $6 to get the free shipping. (The shipping would have been $13 for me, which would have made it more than the non-sale price, so it's worth finding other stuff for the free shipping.)

Actually, right now, it's not taking the shipping off at all, even with other items putting the price over $35. Not sure why. But that actually makes the drive MORE than if you buy it without the promo code!

Promo code items excluded from free shipping. Way too much work to get a $30 Hitachi refurb. I need about 4 more... but I'll wait for another eBay deal.

Egads, unless you have a B&M Frys within driving distance, they royally suck. It's like they got worse after dumping outpost.com.

Yes, I just got off the phone with them, and they apparently changed their policy last Tuesday. And the rep said that they are no longer allowed to take shipping off as a courtesy. So, basically, this drive is MORE than the regular price. Since the promo code is for $11 off, and shipping is $12.89. I guess it's worth it if you're buying a bunch of items, but then the shipping cost would probably be much higher.

Yet, the item's page still says "Ships free" with no indication that you have to click on those words for the terms that specify it's not free on orders with promo codes. Not is there any mention of this change in policy in the email, on the promo ad pages or item pages on their site.
