Worth running CrysyalDiskInfo on this after you get it, it'll give you an idea of the usage it's had in terms of start/stop and operating hours. 'Very Good' condition doesn't really mean a whole lot for how it is inside.
Ok. Thank you. I was not aware of this software
I not sure whether to buy this or go for new 8 TB for similar amount.

I'd suggest a new HDD, you'll have a warranty and assurance that it'll work for longer!

and not from Amazon. their warranty situation can be ... convoluted to say the least. You can never be sure if you are buying a 1 year OEM disk or a 3 year retail etc. I've seen listings saying 3 year warranty... yet when you go to register it... the manufacturer says oh this is an OEM disk and nothing to do with us .. and has 1 year warranty.

Precisely - As I once heard: “There are two types of hard disk drives. Those that are broken and those that haven’t broken yet.”

Echoing that....I have no problem buying recertified drives period, or 'used' drives from Amazon because it won't have actually been been 'used'.....the previous buyer probably just changed their mind, but as Klebs says, Amazon basically provide a 1 year warranty and never 3 regardless of what they say. Drives tend to either work fine for years and years or die almost instantly, and you want to know which yours is within that 1 year.

By the time you get this, it will have been packaged by Amazon and sent through the postal system 3 times. Both Amazon packaging and 3 times through the gauntlet are not good.

Definitely run Crystal Mark software to identify any errors. You will get back a clear "very good" message or something indicating a "problem". I have no idea what all the other numbers and things indicate.

I'd be cautious with a used drive so close to release simply because so little will be in the public domain about common faults. You could be buying another 3TB Seagate drive!

All in all, I'd get a 8TB for the same money, but this is a cracking deal. If the 10TBs were more established, I'd go for one.
Wow - 10TB is a lot of data to lose.

i too don't mind buying used items from amazon, but when i bought a used 5TB external for about £85 from a previous warehouse discount deal, i didn't bother to check it, when i did go to use it, only 500GB was available due to a fault. i just bought another drive and then returned the faulty one.
Lol. Very good condition. It's what's inside that counts

Raid or storage spaces
WD are awesome, great HDD's however unless you have a large music collection or do editing 10TB isnt required
Just recently got a NAS with two 4tb drives for less from Amazon. Granted it wasn't the newer model with WD red drives but the NAS manufacturer gives a few years, 24 hour, warranty so even though they are Seagate drives it's not too bad.
I bought a Seagate barracuda 2tb to replace one of the drives, yet again, in my old Iomega nas but it doesn't seem to work alongside the older barracuda for some reason. From Amazon and the warranty is showing up as an oem drive.
At least I got an atom based NAS with 8tb of drives, twin network ports, 2gb memory, hot swappable drives and 4 usb ports for just over £160 so I don't have to continue using my older 256mb arm based nas.
Not only do I have to backup my own data, I do backups for my wife, parents & siblings. They all take too many photo's and videos on their phones. They all expect me to have backups of everything. I guess its like most families.
