Two 74 GB Raptor Hard Drives for sale.

These are 'Recertified' by the factory, warranty replacements for the new drives that failed after 8 months. The warranty on them is good until 07/2011. These should be as good as new. I assume they are empty. Cache is 8MB.

Retail list price is around $140.

I am asking $110 each or $200 for the pair. Buyer pays for shipping of their choice.

If this is the 8MB version, then does that mean it's the 2 platter version of the 74?

I did a bit of research on this as I didn't know either way. I found this by Anandtech.

It indicates these are the two platter version, both the WD740GD-00FLC0 model number, apparently what amounts to V2.0.

The newer version 74GB drives with 16MB cache are single platter designs based on the 150GB model platters.

Thanks for tracking this down for me!

Sadly, I was only interested in the newer single platter version.
