A refurbished Hard Drive? Dont Insult Me! Oreilly Rules!<br /><b>(USER WAS PUT ON PROBATION FOR THIS POST)</b>

I bought 3 last time, and they are working fine in my external enclosure. Not so much as a bad sector… I added the 3 I bought with another WD250 I had in this enclosure doing RAID 0 with windows 2003. Rock solid and suppa fast at 1tb.
