General"Renewed" disks Pin

I recently bought a new 14TB disk drive to put in my new 4-disk enclosure (no raid or anything special, just a simple enclosure to save power strips) connected to my file server via 6gb eSATA.

I liked the way it performed so went back to buy another one only to find it was out of stock but they offered a "renewed" version of the same disk for $10 less. I decided against this as disk life seemed important and I don't care how much they polished the case, the disk itself had obviously done some amount of spinning before it was "renewed".

Anyone got any definite knowledge or even vague opinions about this?
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
