yes, but! these must be "professionally" refurbished, certified, etc., and offered through reputable and qualified stores (Amazon, etc.). they must also offer limited warranties and after-service, and maintain established past customer-satisfaction history and ratings. :ugeek:

Hence the trash can post disk removal (and subsequent destruction).

Could have maybe gotten a few bucks each as a core to be refurbished by one of those companies, but too much trouble.
