This is used and refurbished replacement ATA/IDE 2.5” hard drive for older laptops or it can be used as external storage when combined with an external enclosure or USB device.
It has been fully checked and reports good to excellent with no bad or unusable sectors.
These drives are blanked and initiated but not formatted so you will need to know how to format them for your use.
The photos are for illustrative purposes only and will not be the exact drive you receive. You will receive a drive from our general stock. If you have a particular preference for make of drive please state this when ordering and we will do our best to help but cannot guarantee we have your request in stock.
Due to the age of these older IDE hard drives some noise might be heard during use. This is perfectly normal for these older, low gigabyte IDE drives.
All orders are sent well packed in an anti-static bag within a strong postal box by Royal Mail 1st class post. Please appreciate that once we send your purchase we cannot be held responsible for Royal Mail failing to deliver on time as these things are out of our control.
Please note that if you intend to check or use this drive in an external USB housing it may not be detected. THIS IS NOT A FAULT WITH THE DRIVE.
These older drives may also need a jumper on the pins, depending on your intended use of the drive, which is not supplied. We have had some people returning these drives to us for this reason when there is NOTHING WRONG WITH THE DRIVE.
