Appears to be an older model with quality control issues. Might be acceptable for non-mission critical purposes.

To me, 'Refurbished Hard Drive' is a term like 'Military Intelligence' - something folks make fun of.

Although several years ago, I was forced to purchase 'Refurbished' Seagate 160GB IDE HDDs in order to keep my ReplayTVs running - i.e. new just were no longer available.

I felt the same way about 'Refurbished Monitor' but Newegg recently had a refurbished HP LA1951G 19" 5ms LCD Monitor Grade A 250 [newegg.com] for $29.99 and I've recently been running my old refurbed HP dc5700 24x7 testing new HDDs, usually with an old CRT burning, so I gave it a shot.

Works OK. Just turned it off after a week long test.

But, those Seagate 160GB IDE HDDs all had 25K+ hours with a rated MTBF of 30K. Health problems intervened and I never needed them anyway. Now using TiVos. laugh out loud

why would anyone get refurbished (USED) drive when brand new ones are available for about $20 more?

Please link these new 4TB Enterprise Drives for $120, that you're talking about.

Yes, that is the going rate for a WD RED, but what you're failing to consider is there are major differences between Reds and Enterprise drives. Although there are fancy marketing schemes in place to confuse consumers, Reds are essentially consumer grade drives with a slightly more robust case, and TLER enabled. They are still 5400 RPM drives. Enterprise class drives are 7200 RPM, have a much more vibration resistant case, and are typically rated for much higher MTBF. This drive is discontinued and the only links I can find for sale range from $210-250.

Thanks, just ordered one for $95. I'll have to test the drive when it arrives. It's a worthwhile tradeoff for a drive that should last for 2 million hours.
