Recertified = Quick Diagnostic Pass, wipe down with cloth, new black twist wire for USB cable, new brown box. Then they give you a pathetic 6 month warranty

I got a recertified older version of these on Groupon for my Xbox one S. Almost 2 years later and not a single issue. If you think its a risk then to each his own but I think wd knows how to repair their own products. I doubt they'd be selling them if they thought they were gonna fail or corrupt peoples stored files.

$45 refurb or $65 new ? For the extra $20 it's worth it to not have to worry about losing your info due to failure

Whether I, or anyone here, thinks the short warranty is a problem isn't relative. The fact remains that WD is slicing a 3 year or 2 year warranty down to 6 months. Yeah, I think they know how to repair their own products. But they know something we don't know. The warranty is very telling for me. But glad yours worked out for ya.

These are perfect for the Xbox. If you lose the drive you can always just re-download.

Western Digital is the Lexus of hard drives. I wouldn't worry too much.
