So I bought a 250gb Seagate 16mb cache SATA2 hard-drive last month. It arrived DOA which is no biggie. RMA it to newegg and get a new replacement. Well the replacement decided to die on me 2 days after newegg's 30 day replacement policy meaning I have to RMA it to seagate. So off goes my first Seagate RMA and after waiting two weeks I got a Refurbish hard-drive back. Quite disappointed but not surprise since I heard of Seagate, WD, and other companies doing the same. Just curious how others feel about refurbish hard-drives? I'm a bit sketchy about them but there is the 5 year warranty from Seagate to tidy me over. But I would hate for my family's computer to lose all their data again (perhaps they need some raid 5 ).
