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.

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.
