  2. 3 TB hard drive for 40 dollars on letgo

    This drive will be a keeper. I did get a 2 tb seagate like a month or 2 ago but that was because i didnt have a spare hard drive thats bigger then 500 gigs and i was selling a computer. This one im keeping for my bought a few days ago 35 dollar rackmount server or maybe my HP compaq elite SFF file server
  3. Hard Drive Sounds Like Coffee Maker

    i had hdd's that made coffeemaker sounds, almost grinding sound with really old ones, but its fine. Your data is not at risk, the drive is just noisy
  4. 3 TB hard drive for 40 dollars on letgo

    i met with the guy last night, he does computer hardware repairs and said the drive is perfectly working being used in a desktop. I havent plugged it in yet due to the hard drive in my friends computer failed which took time and he said if the drive fails with in 3 days of purchase, he will refund it
  5. 3 TB hard drive for 40 dollars on letgo

    ive gotten hard drives out of unused laptops and desktops and 2 cable boxes (one a TivO box, i still have its 160 gb WD greenpower drive and its been great and reliable and that unlucky direct tv box after my friend started using it)
  6. 3 TB hard drive for 40 dollars on letgo

    i actually had good luck with secondhand storage. I bought 2 tb seagate for 40 dollars (its literally the exact same model number as the one i got in my pc that paid 66 for on newegg) but the used one had 20,000 hours of use on it already but no sector issues and still providing 200 MB/sec Read/write throughput. The only time i had bad luck was when i pulled a hard drive from a direct tv dvr i got at goodwill. The hard drive (320 gb WD AV drive) was working fine when i had it until i gave it to a friend and 2 weeks later it was making noises and being really slow.
  7. I found a 3 tb WD green for 40 usd on letgo and thinking of buying it. The last time i had a WD green (free from a neighbor) it failed on me an hour later so im a bit worried this one will do the same. Should i bring a laptop and a usb to sata hdd enclosure to check the smart data on crystaldiskinfo before i buy it?

  12. sub 300 dollar high refresh rate monitors

    i dont like refurb stuff, usually the manufacturer just turns it on, tests it, and resells.
  13. sub 300 dollar high refresh rate monitors

    The xb241h is 400 now but the xf240h is 250. I I’ll definitely watch these monitors when Black Friday or some other tech deal comes around
