refurbished hard drive is a used drive that is at the end of its life with usage data erased. that drive will not last.

I strongly agree. It's unethical for manufacturers to sell refurbished HDDs at prices similar to new ones from just a few years ago. This is a clear attempt to exploit consumers during tough economic times. Many of these refurbished drives come from returned items that were leased to companies, and now they're being resold at inflated prices.

To make matters worse, I came across an article stating that HDD manufacturers have hiked prices on new products by 20-25%. This price increase is likely an attempt to push consumers towards buying these overpriced refurbished units.

I urge everyone to be cautious and consider the long-term reliability and value of their purchases. Don't fall for these greedy tactics—it's better to wait for better deals or consider other storage options. Let's not support these unethical practices.
