Open Box Worth the Risk

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So i was Browsing Newegg looking for a HDD when i stumbled upon this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136993. now, comparing this to a new Velociraptor, the price is insane and with HDD prices so high already, why not, and i figure, 300gb is more than enough until i have enough to invest in a 1tb green or somthing like that, which at that point, this will become a boot and game only drive. What do you guys think

**Note, on my main computer that i have EVERYTHING on, i only use about 130gb with all but 3 games installed (crysis, Batman AC and Dungeon Seige 3 would melt it tongue.gif)

I would say it's fine IF the manufactureres warranty is still valid.

Go for it if a warranty still applies, there's nothing to lose but money to save, in that instance.
