Warmth coming your way, if anyone cares to try, once you have the item in your WD cart, choose premium delivery, there should be 2 choices, once your have chosen the more expensive delivery, click the back button on your browser, then click the forward button so it reloads the cart, then choose the other option.. this *might* give you free delivery without having to buy 2 units

Tommy Cooper called - he'd like his joke book back!
I personally would avoid recertified hard disks. Ask yourself the following:
1: What is a recertified disk? - Its a disk that was returned to the manufacturer and they tested/repaired it and thought it would be good enough for consumers.
2: Why would a disk be returned? - Because it failed, maybe when first installed, maybe after 11 months of day in day out thrashing. Problems can vary from connectors to controllers to platter and head issues.
3: Are they as good as new unused disks? - They should have tested the disks to see what caused the failure and if the problem was controller related they can easily and cheaply replace that. If it was some issue with the heads or platters then its far more work to repair, clean room disassembly etc, difficult with a part that has been gathering dust. I would say they would do the minimum to get the disk operating again, low level p+g format and firmware updates.
4: Would i trust a previously failed disk with my data? - no fecking chance.

These are all valid points. I've thought the same myself - my views align with yours.
