    Look for the condition of the screws. Brand new never repaired HDD would have solid screws with no sign of opening.

    Buy from CSL.

    1. Check if the packet is properly sealed.

    2. Buy from importers directly, i.e. Computer Source for WDD.

    3. Check for scratches around screws and cleanliness of the connectors. Ignore any scratch on the top plate.

    4. If still in doubt after purchasing, install HDTune or Defraggler, Select the new drive, take a screenshot of the health tab and post it here.

    Funny people mention CSL who were reported to sell refurbished product in the past.
    I suppose they are better than small multiplan shops.

    CSL's refurbished HDDs could at least be factory re-furbished or repaired. Others would be worse.
    Also if there was any other importer who brought WDD, I'd suggest them over CSL any time.

    Factory refurbished products usually have a 'Certified Refurbished' seal on them so it would be absolutely stupid for someone to sell them as new.

    looks like i cant buy from cs as they are asking 4.7k for wd blue 1tb hdd but after investigating some shops in multi plan most of them are selling at 4.5k and i am in tight budget cant exceed even 100 taka , so is it will be wise to buy from multi plan instead cs?

    I am trying to change the scenario in Smart technology. But i am the very sole fighter there. Moreover, im not a Smart's employee. Im from GIGABYTE. Not sure how much i will be able to uplift the current condition, but pray for me.

    can you tell them to **** *** just like you tell us in the forums?

    also, you may consider contacting gigabyte to find more partners in BD who cares about customer care, you can find at least 100 to 200 real people from BD to stand beside you if you open up a petition.

    also let them know about current warranty policy of BD market... because those companies give very good warranty policy.. if they hear about BD they will be :O

    Yes. Now they are the worst sufferer of this. Reduced the warranty of Logitech products from two to one. Thus people moved to Newmen/Bloody. Grey channeled product invaded the market, UCC took over the MSI distributorship, they are absolutely screwed up. Tit for tat i would say.

    No. But i am trying to increase the GIGABYTE GPU warranty to 3 years. Don't know if i will succeed or not, but just trying.

    No.

    Yes. That's my main focus.

    Yes. I totally stopped the imports of Superb and Hercules series. Sumo, Pulse and Ares will come up shortly.
