I have a 1 TB model and I never had a problem. It seems well made and I especially like the connector to the drive which is more rugged than a mini USB.
WD has them new for same price and free shipping
No they don’t - they have the 1 TB for the same price in the metal drives. The 2 TB is $99.99
The regular - non-metal ultra is $89.99 for 2 TB
Same price, but new here:
[MOD: Not the same item]
Model number please.
Photos do not match the current generation, so this must be an older reconditioned model? Meh.
As others above have said, that price seems high for a refurb. A hard drive has sensitive moving parts and you can have no idea how it was treated/abused.
Unless you’re only using it to move data from one location to another, I’d never touch a refurb portable drive. Many (most?) folks use them to back up their precious data. Save nothing to $10-20 when it is your data? No way.
Patience finds similar deals on new drives, shipped free.
Gotta pay attention that you’re getting a USB 3.0 connected drive though.

Is this Macintosh compatible?
These drives are great if you have a USB data port that works with your stereo in your car, too. You can have your whole library - and then some - mobile.
I ordered the 2Tb drive form woot a couple of weeks ago the last time it was on sale. It was packaged in a padded envelope and a little bit of bubble wrap.
I was worried about the condition of the drive given it’s poor packaging. Sure enough, when I tried to test the drive, the USB 3.0 cable that came with it could not be plugged into it. At all.
I contacted woot and they told me that the hard drive was still under warranty, and they could do no more for me than offer a $7 refund if I decided to keep it.
I spent almost $20 to ship the drive back to Western Digital for a warranty replacement and I am still waiting for the results with that.
I am extremely dissatisfied with woot’s customer care and shipping process for these drives. So, fellow wooters: buyer beware.
No matter how no-frills a seller is, there is no excuse for not accepting a pre-paid return/exchange for a product received in defective condition.
There are plenty of competitive alternative sources that do not share this customer service defect.
That 6 hours after your post there is no response hints this treatment is normal.
