A local pawn shop had a portable 2TB HD for $40. It was out of warranty by nearly a year and was a model made to sell at Walmart, two red flags right there. I made sure to ask about the 7-day return privilege, and was told that everything is now sold as-is, but if I wanted to pay an extra 5% I could have that one-week warranty, 10% for two weeks. Pass. Even fricking Goodwill offers a 7-day return on electronics. I expect this to backfire on them, but I’ll never know since I don’t plan on returning.

On the bright side, now I no longer have a need to go out of my way to get to this store...
