Refurbished Hard Drive?
Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.
I was skeptical about buying a refurbished item, especially a hard drive, but the discount was tempting. So I pulled the trigger and bought this thing.
The packaging was a little messed up, and you could easily tell that this wasn't brand new. However, when I opened the box, the Hard drive was in very good condition. No visible Scratches or exterior damage.
It came with two cables: A USB-C to USB-C cable, and a USB-C to USB-A cable. I'm not sure if they're the OEM cables, but I tested them both and they worked just fine.
The hard drive itself was just as advertised. It plugged into my mac and my windows PC after I partitioned the drive, and worked flawlessly for data transfer. So far I haven't had any issues with it. Would buy again.
No issue bought refurbished, went to disk management in win 10 and assigned a drive letter formatted and a minute later copied a folder with 14g over in like 20 sec. same size as a credit card and a thick at 5-6 stacked up
I liked this so much I bought another!
Two together take up less space than a pack of cigarettes.
Connected to a 3.0 USB they are FAST!
I use one for backup, and the other for double backup of my music catalog. (Quite extensive) Super fast file access even when loaded down.
Can't say enough good things about this product.
(Oh, and different colors for quick grab and go)
It did not work when it arrived. My computer seemed to recognize it, but would not assign it a drive letter.
Eventually, i was able to assign one and it works great. It was refurbished and supposedly certified, but they somehow missed that. Its been a month and there have not been any more issues.
So it works grear now. If it doesnt assign a drive letter, ut only takes a few minutes and some google research about Windows 11, to assign a letter and make it work..
The drive would be great if not a "refurbished" model. It certainly looked in good physical condition, but on the digital side it isn't so pretty. I saw 4TB had been written to the drive, which *should* indicate lots of life left...right?
I work in IT so didn't have any issue partitioning the drive, but immediately had problems trying to use the drive afterward. I've updated the firmware multiple times now via the Samsung Magician (Windows) or Samsung Portable SSD (OS X) software but still the drive freezes until you unplug it and plug it back in, eventually turning corrupt or unreadable at random. Re-downloading games to it is difficult as these large sets of files (RDR2 is 123.4GB, for example) sometimes barely get started before you'll see "Installation stopped" and the download or transfer can only be cancelled and restarted. Thought it was a networking issue but the same happens when trying to transfer the games from another drive to this one. If you can eventually get the games installed or files transferred, eventually this drive needs to be formatted again to resume working. Very poor refurbishment from Best Buy.
Along with my recent refurbished GoPro, and I think there was another refurb before that, I have determined that if it looks good and powers on for a while, that's as thorough of testing as the products will get. At least Best Buy does offer a 90-day warranty so risk is minimal. It's a gamble; you only lose some time and gas money when you have to return it, and it could fail right outside the 90-day window, but if you can get a working one it's a hell of a deal.
