    EXPIRED Western Digital DC SA620 1.6tb $145 or buyer's offer

    I got a bad vibe after some messages back and forth, that made me doubt the authenticity of the what he was listing. Didn't know anything about the drives and claimed someone "gave them to him". More importantly his account didn't have recent sales history, and it lines up with a particular...

    Scam Alert ... E5-2667 v4 (Pair)

    No offense but Paypal, eBay, the forum operator cannot police every scam and you have a personal responsibility to use common sense. A forum is not an ecommerce platform. Someone with random numbers in their forum name should've been a red flag, not to mention the gmail address with random...

    BestBuy - WD - Easystore 10TB with 32GB Flash Drive - $180

    While on this subject, they won't power up on Norco RPC-4224. Once I started buying these newer drives like the WD80EZAZ, I deliberated on Kayton taping pin3 on every drive I bought, but I move drives around frequently and didn't have any tolerance for tape falling off and not noticing...

    FS: Enterprise HGST and Toshiba HDDs/SSDs
