    That's a pity as I don't like giving Paypal money for doing something my bank does for free. If you will pay any charges then I'll take them at £42.50.

    well before we get that far, let me get you a photo of both drives, and do you want me to run any tests on them? they are both from laptops I have upgraded. so let me know and then we can come back to payment?

    Thanks for your patience.

    It would be helpful if you could run any tests you have available. The drives will be used as spares/backup for the one I bought from MacrosTheBlack.

    Paypal gift would be OK but I still think there is a charge from what I remember.

    Hi
    so I downloaded crystalHD - wish I hadn't! the drive comes up as having a high reallocated sector count, I can't honestly sell this drive with that result, it would be unfair and dishonest. Therefore currently I can't in good conscience go ahead with the sale of the 500gb. Sorry mate.

    so I checked a different 500gb hard drive and that has a caution for sectors saying 1 sector has been re-allocated, googling - this doesn't look like its a problem as long as the number doesn't go up and 1 sector is pretty much not an issue, but I am not sure i'm all a bit confused! it seems to bring up cautions with my two main 3.5" drives for similar reasons and yet google says don't worry! if that makes any sense to you!

    Would a Seagate Momentus 750Gb SATA II be of any interest to you?
