Hi. thanks. I still have the original drive. I thought it was noisy, but the rufurbished is just has noisy, so maybe i over reacted. should i keep the first one or the refurbished one. are they truly just has good as wd says they are?

Commented:
I have had many dealings with western digital and there refurbished drives and from my experience I have found that they are just as good and relieable as the new ones.  Sometimes more so because of firmware problems that get fixed or updated on the refurbished models.
