eBay is not Newegg!
With Newegg you can be confident (within reason) about getting quality merchandise. However, with eBay there is always a higher risk involved.
If the eBay reviews are good, prices very attractive, and other buyers are happy, factor in the risk and go for it!
I am aware of that. I have hundreds of purchases between the two. My questions is, is anyone aware of someone who purchased one and the results of using an OEM drive like this? The prices are very attractive but i'm afraid it may die after a few months only.
