Right. Woot is no longer a woot any more. I do not even remember when was last time I bought anything from woot.
Unreliable brand and overpriced compared to other vendors. Woot! plz…
Cheaper item, free shipping and even the extended replacement plan is less than half the price. o_O
Seems there’s very little reason to purchase here any longer. Suppose woot! is still filling the coffers – otherwise they’d go the way of the Dodo. W/the deals now playing, they’re doing a pretty good job of going that way. Just sayin’…
I agree. since woot sold out to amazon and discontinued the taxsucks discount they are not the same… a woot deal can always be beat. i sold all my screaming monkeys in a garage sale.
I just came here to note that this is cheaper elsewhere… jeez Woot. You’ve lost your edge.
Even Amazon has reconditioned ones for $55 + $8 shipping, which comes out to less than this deal. And they use the exact same product picture.
Is it OK to purchase and trust a refurbished hard drive? Regardless of where you purchase it?
I wouldn’t trust a hard drive that only has a 90 day warranty, especially since it’s through Woot. You’ll likely just get a refund if it fails and have to buy a new drive on your own.
I got one of these drives a year ago. It only formatted about 1.3 Tb The rest chokes on the format and I am stuck with a cloud drive that has about 1/4 of it null and void.

Glad I checked the comments.
This must be an extra-terrible deal if even thunderthighs hasn’t tried to defend it.
Actually, the most reliable according to this:
Since Backblaze has tens of thousands of disks and does actually data analysis on failures I am pretty sure they know more than you do.
So terrible it sold out already.
It was actually a good deal. Great brand, recertified… ugh. Hate I missed it as I was looking at UltraStars just yesterday.
