Bulk NVMe drives available! Micron 9300Pro 3.84TB

LukeRhinoLukeRhino Member, Patron Provider

I have a large quantity of 3.84TB Micron 9300 PRO U.2 NVMe drives available.

Pictures

Model: MTFDHAL3T8TDP-1AT1ZA
Price: $169 each

These are refurbished with 70-80% health remaining, I am selling them cheap to account for this. Really good enterprise model and should have plenty of life left.

These were removed from Gigabyte EPYC servers that I also have available(here)

    Refurbished server is reasonable up to a point. But refurbished SSD is like a horror movie trailer in my opinion..

    How exactly are they refurbished? They just sound used.

    My honest feedback is that at 70-80% while this should be good for the average user we typically wouldn't buy anything under 90-95% ourselves.

    We've gotten a lot of 4TB drives with 95-100% Most on 98-100% for less than that but we also are ordering them in bulk 200-500+ drives at a time.

    Still a pretty decent price for the average user once again.

    The Micro 9300 series drives are excellent, but can't imagine buying with that wear. The price is good though, considering 100% health used is like double cost.

    EZ, radiate the chip so that used percentage is reset to zero.

    Can doctor make SSD health better?

    Thanks all! Of course new drives would be preferred(have plenty of those if that is needed) :) trying to find that spot where price and function meet on these used ones!

  • FalzoFalzo Member

    Something like "70-80% health" is simply to vague.
    Maybe add some exemplary smartctl data of a few of those drives. The percentage does not say much. PoweronHours , TB written and spare used is much more interesting. If these are reasonable, people probably would be willing to start thinking about it.

    Understood, have close to 1000x of these so a range made sense from that standpoint, happy to give more detailed info if anyone would like to see it. Thanks for the reply!

  • I think you'll have more success posting these on /r/homelabsales

    Very tempting. Would make excellent mirror for new drive at this price point. Though would be great to have more smart details.

    We don't have a great way for you to view our inventory other than eBay, and that won't include everything. The best option is for you to reach out to me with what you need and I can let you know what we have or suggest a close alternative. Think of me as a personal server shopping concierge :)

    I was thinking the same thing. However, how would you deal with the customs taxes?

  • LukeRhinoLukeRhino Member, Patron Provider

    You would be responsible for clearing the package through customs and paying any VAT.

    Yes, for sure. That's why I previously said that it's a pity you are not in the EU.
