  1. Hi all,

    Recently I got a replacement HDD from Maxtor. Upon inspecting my new HDD, it say Refurbished drive. So they sending me an 2nd hand HDD.

    Question is, can they do that?

    No way, I'm going to buy Maxtor drive anymore...

    Everyone does that.

    If some ***** RMAs his perfectly OK drive because he can't plug the cables in right then you can't expect Maxtor to throw the thing away.

    All companies fix trivial faults in their products and let them back into circulation. You should appreciate that Maxtor actually bothers to let you know.

    That kinda suck. BTW, you can't really send back Maxtor HDD without the error code. I don't think they will give you an RMA without the code.

    Oh, let me see if I can see what store in this HDD. Could be loadsa goodies....
