good value

 

will keep watching, having confidence in the 3 year warranty, but it is hard to say how the drive will fit under the warranty. does all i need it to, nice size, has floppy disk, but no ide connectors, just fdd.

good value, 3 year warranty, boots up, win7pro key

hard drive hours 34000 - over 3 1/2 years. power on cycles less than 200, so the drive was powered up and spinning almost the whole time - not sure what that means for the life of it, but will keep watching
