Manufacturer Refurbished [?]Manufacturer Refurbished  - Savvy buyers know that manufacturer refurbished products can be a great value. These items are usually priced 10 to 15 percent lower than a comparable new product. When you buy a manufacturer refurbished product, you can be assured you're getting the quality you have come to expect from the manufacturer. When products are returned—often unopened—to a manufacturer from retailers or customers, manufacturer-trained technicians take them apart and rebuild them to original factory specifications. The technicians then retest to ensure that these products meet the same quality standards as required for brand-new manufacturer products.

Quick delivery of a value-priced Hard Drive, 2011-10-12
By Paul R Walsh 
I ordered an external Hard Drive (Western Digital.) Delivery was quick and free. The product was described as 'refurbished' but still looked new. No manuals or instructions were included; but that information was easily downloaded from the manufacturer's website. The drive had been formatted for PC; reformatting for Mac was easily accomplished using the online instructions. No problems at all.

Works well, 2011-10-26
By Jeff 
Have had this drive for a couple of weeks and am not dissapointed with the ease of use fairly rapid transfer speed and have not noticed any noise from the unit.
I have had the best luck with Western Digital in any of the internal or external drives I have picked up in the last few years. ( cant say that about seagate , I have had two of those die on me one in a TiVo and one in a hp desktop)
I would recommend this unit and the store to all my coworkers , friends and family.
I would like to thank them for the multiple shipping options as the ups in my small town can’t find my house about 90-95 % of the time ( used fed-ex on this unit)
Will definitely keep the store in " my go to" for further shopping ! Thank you guys !

By Richard Nuttall 
This hard drive was an excellent price. It is working well, and is simple to use. I have not tried to use any of the special features, as I'm just using it as a backup drive for now.
