many complaints for goHardDrive attributed to their wiping the SMART data on drives they "refurbish"

That alone is reason enough to steer clear of them.

I have personally never had a problem with goHardDrive. You get what you pay for. They have been great about replacing bad drives for me within their warranty period (literally no-cost replacements which is more than can be said for the actual manufacturers which require you to pay shipping). The wiped SMART data is a given although they don't don't always do it. Who cares, the fact is, you're getting used-up, burned-out drives at a discount. Expect bad parts because they're used. However, "enterprise" "used" is different from "consumer" "used" so I have gotten quite a bit of life out of their old parts (with careful mitigations/backups in place).
