FWIW, only 1 out of 3 worked the last time I bought some of these here.
this is a great HD…i got one.
… good prices… get it… p.s. froogle is crap now… i said it in the other woot and i’ll say it again… never liked their comparisons… they don’t even compact products anymore… weak…
I haven’t had one of these drives (out of 6) that lasted more than two days. Bummer!
Western Digital Caviar 250GB Hard Drive
$49.99+ $5 shipping
1 Western Digital Caviar 250GB Hard Drive WD2500
yeah yeah, a refurb hard drive is JUST what I want to store those mp3’s and photos - I just KNOW that it’s high quality and won’t crash!
Bought a couple of these previously-they run very hot-if you put them in an enclosure without a fan, the paint actually blisters and burns off! Otherwise, if well cooled, they work fine.
Oh no, not the woot-signature 250gb wd hard drives!!!
I’ve gotten 3 so far and all have worked… no wait, had to return 1 but woot took care of it no prob.
Shitty drive for internal use, awesome one for external. Perhaps somewhere down the wootoff line the usb/firewire cases will pop up again. 250gig external USB/Firewire drive for less than $100, damn good deal (80gig ones are often more than $100)
The one I got last time is doing well as a upgrade to a HD/dvd recorder I got at Walmart Worked fine outa the box and still going many months later.
just bought a 250 GB SATA Hard drive for $70, GREAT BUY! Rather that than this refurbished JUNK!
bah, if this was SATA, id get it, IDE though, lame
holy woot off!! so much for sleep
WHAT’S THE WOOT-OFF COUNTDOWN SITE ADDRESS???
i missed the speakers, please put up a bag of chips!
Just great, my first woot-off and I have 8 hour straight training session tomorrow!
Larry can you believe it? It’s finally WOOT OFF Time!!! Yayyyyy.
I got two of these a few months back to back up my audio server and they work great.
2 MB buffer is fine for server apps (and probably most others).
