Are recertified drives off newegg worth it?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
People have been telling me that the recertifieds are just as good as the new ones, but not as good a warranty and much cheaper. Is this true? Should I get a recertified drive so I can get a better CPU?

I would only get Western Digital recertifieds, they make quality hdd's that last for a long time. This is a good option here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136760 , but it really only saves you like $10.
