    Is this a HOT deal or just an OK deal ?

    3 years vs 90 days warranty :confused:

    30% discount but 90% cut on warranty:rolleyes:

    Cold deal - it's a returned, broken drive that has been fixed ("recertified"). 90 days warranty is a joke. What I do is put a Seagate drive in a MacAlly case - 5 years warranty on the drive, 1 year on the case.

    Yes it costs more than this deal - but I won't trust my data to a drive that the seller only trusts for 90 days !
