    3 x 3TB Black Edition Caviar drives offered for sale. High performance drives with atleast 2 years warranty left. One drive has "bad?" written on the drive and subsequently scribbled out. I have since run this drive a health check in HD Tune and zero errors were reported and given a clean bill of health.

    After his interest in my last set of drives I have agreed to offer @mkelbie first refusals on these.

    Price and currency: £215
    Delivery: Delivery cost is included
    Payment method: PPG or BT
    Location: North Kent near Bluewater
    Advertised elsewhere?: Not advertised elsewhere
    Prefer goods collected?: I have no preference

    Only just saw this sorry...

    They don't seem to be as cheap as the previous ones.

    I can offer £120 + £5 delivery?

    No problem, I hope you worked out that was for only 2 of them though as I've mentioned before I want them in pairs.

    Thanks

    Cheers.

    Morning gents, I know it's only a £5, but £60 is my highest offer for one of the two drives without the scribble. I can get a brand new drive for £70 (not same make/model, but good enough for my requirements) so with that I'm out. GLWS.

    Hi, are you adding a 4TB? How much?
    Also have you sold any of the drives?

    I'm only interested in one.

    Yes that is doable. If @mkelbie still wants two and you will take the other for £65 then we are good to go.

    What's the history with the one with bad written on it? Who wrote bad and why?

    I wrote "bad?" on there after an issue with a RAID array. I had 6 identical drives so when I need to track which one needed checking at a glance I made a note. In the end it was actually a faulty motherboard PCIe the root cause. As above I have run HD tune and it passed with flying colours. I'll again reiterate it has at least two years warranty, if not three.

    Mine have also been collected from the post office, haven't got round to using them yet. They are formatted in a funny way so my esxi host doesn't like them.

    Bought a PC from here so once that arrives I will pop them in that to format
