Is $60 your budget? And do you need 1.5TB?

I have a 2Tb just like it, it's still in the box though. I don't see any mention of a warranty except buying
one from Squaretrade. A new comes with a 7 year warranty. Office Depot usually puts the 1Tb on sale
about every other week for I think $79 or $89.

Wow! 7 years? That's crazy. I don't think I've ever seen a hard drive (or, really any tech) warranty for that long. 5 years is usually about the longest I see.

I personally don't believe in buying refurbed HDDs. Seems to me that it would be a bad choice, especially since new HDDs are becoming so inexpensive. YMMV, as always.

Refurb HDD. You've got to be kidding.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Why do you say this?

If you have one go bad under warranty, guess what you will get as a replacement.
