Samsung SATA drives

General Computer Discussion - Badcaps Forums - www.badcaps.net
We have a donor who wants to recycle ~2700 seats. We can find homes for the machines but our contact indicates there are ~2500 disks in cardboard boxes (50 boxes of 50) alongside the machines -- which he claims STILL have their disks inside.

I suspect this is not the case -- that the disks have been pulled and placed into boxes alongside the machines (which now are "empty"). But, he was insistent that these are extra disks -- beyond the disks present in the machines.

This would pose a logistical problem for us -- no use for all those extra disks. They would have to have some particular worth to justify the effort of cleaning and storing them.

They are apparently all Samsung ~300GB 3.5" SATA drives (I don't have a model number, yet). But, Samsung doesn't strike me as a particular "quality" product (when it comes to disks).

Any first-hand experience with their storage products? I'd be tempted just to send them off to the shredder as scrap...
