  1. A picture would really help. You can see how a brand new X25-M G2 should look like here: http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/showdoc.aspx?i=3607&p=1

    Hook it up to your system and look at the SMART data to see how many power on hours it has.
  4. ^+1.

    That drive looks like it's been used before.
  5. Well, all my parts havnt came yet and i will check the SMART data, but i dont think its been used before becuase the seal package thing was sealed and when i plugged it in, it wasnt even format to the nsft or watever
  6. I bought Intel X25-M recently, it is good use.
