I've bought inexpensive scsi drives from Hypermicro numerous times, and
always received new in sealed static bag drives.  I'm pretty sure that in
the past they've always specified if a drive was a refurb, but of course
past performance is never a guarantee of future performance.

Anyways, the one time I got a bad drive from them they gave me a new one
with zero hassle.  They are good people in my book.
