    Yes, try the Dedicated Hosting offers section. Lots of the companies post their prices there for you to look at.

    as of right now, my current provider ( dedicatednow.com ) is installing a new hard drive because mine failed. I was told when I signed up that all the equipment is brand new and is built with ever new order. HOW can this happen when it was a brand new hard drive? Now im gong to have to wait 4 to 5 hours for this process to complete. This is just absolutly terrible!!

    HDD Failure isn't from the hardware not being new. Why not give the dedicated offers a look. Good competitive pricing. Just don't forget to chime in every once in a while and let us know how things go.

    All hardware will fail. It doesn't matter if its new or old. New hardware is actually more risky percentage wise because there is no production time to average life span on. You don't know its health history.

    Agreed with AFerrier, hard drives fail, new, old, semi-new, semi-old... but more typically you would know a drive would fail if it's flaky when it's new than if it has been working solid for a while. You can always check a drive's age using smart tools.

    Also note that with the churn rate associated with this industry, it would be nearly impossible to stay profitable if you throw away hard drives whenever a customer cancels...

    HD's fail regardless of their age. I've had cases where we get an entire batch of bad drives in that are DOA.

    It's an unfortunate situation but it does happen.

    Exactly, new drives are MORE likely to fail than old drives, unless we're talking a 5+ year old drive. A drive that survives half a year or more has proven itself to be reliable and likely will not fail, with a new drive, it has no history, it isn't part of a group of drives that has "survived this far."

    Drives fail, it is a part of this industry, no matter the age of the drives, plan for it. Get RAID based systems AND keep regular backups.
