hm...is that the reason why Newegg's WD Red has such horrible rating while Amazon has excellent rating?
if thats the case, i am wondering if i should cancel my amazon order and take a chance with newegg.
I had HORRIBLE luck with WD Reds from Amazon. Ordered 3, 2 were DOA. Terrible packaging. Both DOA's were replaced (once again with terrible packaging, and 1 of them was DOA again.
