Ordered 6 of these last week
1 from TD = Good packaging, drive works fine
3 from NewEgg = Great packaging. Came in factory cardboard "tray". All 3 work fine.
2 from Amazon = HORRIBLE packaging. Box was 3x the size it needed to be. Drives bouncing around loose in box with a few inflatable plastic things. 1 drive DOA, other drive dropped out of array after a few hrs.

I received my drives from Newegg today.
They were packed well, had an OEM box that the drive was in with normal side's and packing to boot(cheap packing paper), but still pretty solid compared to what others have complained about.

I didn't call you a newbie. Seniors have their moments too.

|SirMack||So is it possible this drive may not be compatible with certain desktop computers/mobos/etc?|

I am real old school. Using Windows 2000 Server RAID5 Software RAID.
You are right about losing the array will break your heart. I was a little stupid early on, at the time when 200 Gb hard drives were "high capacity" and ran 12 of them as a stripe... I learned my lesson. Even though I had everything backed up on DVD-R's it was still a pain to restore. So, I decided that I am going to protect my self from 1 drive failure, and only back up what I can't replace. If a catastrophic event happens and the whole array is gone, I will most likely have other things to worry about than restoring the media on the hard drives, i.e. food, shelter, safety of my family...
