My 2cents: Have seen many botched drives from that so called "company". So many that I won't even accept them in any more.


Please dont even say !! I hope that my experience would be different

Was the drive clicking and/or spinning down ?

Was the drive detected at all by BIOS with correct model and capacity ?

What was the "initial" problem of the drive ?

:?:

After all this might be just a drive with something like a "slow issue" and a patch of bad sectors ...

Fame and good reputation can be faked or made to look better than it really is.

But you don't know how many they did successfully. Also you don't have information where those drives were before you. May be they were not only in "company".

If you would work with WD Zeus family before, you wouldn't expected "easy cake" case. According to our expirience 9 out of 10 disks from this family are comming with heads issues. And this ones not an easy to deal. With donors will be nightmare aswell.

I trust to provided report, but price realy a bit high even for this kind of drive.

Zeus are PITA, even for a professional.
Matched donors + alignment.
