Smart move to use an IDE drive where 99.9% of the population no longer has an IDE port. So, those who fall victim to the scam will have the "new" drive, no way to interface with it and nobody to return it to.

I probably have a few hundred of these drives, without the fancy WD label and am willing to sell them for half of the price being asked for by this seller. Any takers?

You may call it Junk, believe it or not i`ve seen OLD MACHINES with similar old drives (expensive machines)
where the hdd is DEAD and wanted to REPLACE IT.

last year got maybe 8 cases, you will never know when it comes, just keep it.

As for the Ads. of RED IDE drive, its a SCAM
Think about the new MB, do you see IDE interface now? almost DEAD :wink:

Yeah, I know what you're saying.
However, I have maybe 300 Quantums and Maxtors collecting dust (and taking space) for years.
I've used them to make clocks, as door stoppers, to keep desk level and other un-imaginable ways :p
