Bought one before @99, still good.

Yep these are pretty decent, think I got 2 at 105 each.

What’s inside of these? Are they red drives?

not in stock...

Got the 4TB ones for £54 month or so ago, brilliant deals

Mine were Greens

Re certified usually means they take out the platter and throw it away, the only original remaining components left being the disk head and the circuit boards. Usually... so it's as good as a new one for all intents and purposes. I'm not massively keen on re certified either but I think with disks its usually ok at least not had any die any quicker than off the shelf new ones.

Just give it a rigorous thrash when you get it and if it doesn't error it'll be fine

I'm buying 6 dozen eggs and a large wicker basket to put them in...

Missed this I set up keyword alerts which seem to have missed all the WD deals

If that worries you so much get a second basket and another 6 eggs, or have less eggs.

Not always, it means the drives were returned for some reason, could be as simple as someone opened it and didn't like the colour, maybe a power supply failed (thats not applicable here as they are USB powered), or even the packaging got damaged as it went to the store. It could be the drive had issues and has been repaired, or maybe the internal electrons that does the USB to Drive mounting failed.

Its probably not economically viable to dismantle the drive unit and repair it , if the drive itself has failed it gets replaced with another drive, but not fix the component level of the drive.

Point is there are a few reasons, and there is no way to know what they were, but they should have been identified and fixed as part of the recertification.

good price for 6tb. just check the drive throughly when you get it. run discheck, put on a few tb data, disccheck, format, repeat, delete disc partion, make a new one and repeat and if it does all that 2/3 times you should be fine. i had one that wouldn't make a new partition after deleting it, so got an RMA, but all the other refurbs i've had have been fine

What about the warrenty man?

Why would you even consider buying a second hand hard drive when you could get a new 6TB one for £20 more.
