Hi. anybody know anything about "refurbished' hard drives. bought a new wd hard drive which i had to send back. wd told me to send it back and they would replace it. well they replaced it with a refurbished one which they claim is tested more than a new one. should i stand my groud and demand a new drive or settle for the refurbished. thanks

I is written in there warranty that they at there disgression can repair or replace your defective drive and you as a consumer have little to say about it, I agree with you but they exercised there right and they did solve your problem.  You still have the balance of the 3 yr warranty.

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?

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.
