Can a refurbished HDD be trusted?
18 Helpful?
Ding, ding, ding! We have a winner. Way to reference an incident that happened to one particular line of drives 15 freakin' years ago! Not to mention, that was back when IBM owned this HDD business. Hitachi has owned the business since 2006 and has been extremely reliable.

On top of that, 3.6 TB are nowhere near mainstream. A quick search online shows that you're going to be paying ~$4,000 for an SDD that size. Hell, 1 TB SSD are just starting to become common place and it's still an enthusiast product. Most consumer desktops/laptops still come with mechanical storage.

Chances are that these are working pulls from a data center that's had a scheduled upgrade. The Ultrastars are much more reliable that Seagate's consumer drives. If you jump on this deal, you can check the power on time when you receive them.

for the cost... only way id trust it is in a raid 1 or 5 depending how many you buy. Basically i need some way of getting my data back... Then again you could pop one in a external enclosure for archive type things.. ( low use )

I think these are the same drives that being sold as "bulk oem" drives on goharddrives. I never had any problems with those. But regularly backing up your data is a good practice, regardless of the drives being new or not.
