Are refurbished HDDs a good idea?
>>
Only if you don't care about lifespan.
>>
Only if you can see their SMART data beforehand.

surely something like an HGST Ultrastar is better than a new seagate

>>64129662
You also don't buy new seagates if you care about lifespan.

I have bought used drives. Ask for smart data screenshots and if everything seems fine go for it.

I don't believe in fixed hdds

Is reusing condoms a good idea?

I got my hands on a refurbished 2TB Ultrastar from HGST for $35. Has like 27,000 on hours. I still has comparable drive health to my brand new 2TB seagate barracuda.

If it's a used Seagate that still works fine, you at least know the drive must above-par.

Only if you nut inside first. Can't be going in a second time with the same condom without proper lubrication.
