HP OEM WD1002FBYS 1TB WD RE3 DRIVES
Anyone using these have seen them priced about $80ish which come with a HP caddy which you can remove to mount in others..
Are they safe to use or do they have other firmware loaded on them??
Have also seen the same OEM drives for DELL
part number: WD1002FBYS-704AB0
can easily be found on amazon, ebay etc..

WD1002FBYS is a standard WD part number so there should be no special firmware on them
They have worked great for me so far.
Make sure you have a T10 Torx so you can remove the caddy's.
buy the drives remove from caddy, should work fine. Sell caddys on ebay. now you have a cheaper costing RE drive

I tried one of those drives. One problem is that it does not have WD firmware and is not recognized as a WD drive. This is how adaptec (arcconf) shows it:
Model : MB1000HBLMB
Firmware : HPG0
Serial number : WMATV7533651
Size : 953869 MB
Change my mind with these.. will buy re4's instead.
I will sleep better
