Good price. I had 1 of 4 die after 9 months.

So especially if I have to pay return shipping...anybody ordered HDDs from them before? How well does Adorama pack them?

It's not clear whether the high volume of DOAs from newegg are due to poor packaging, or just crappy QA from WD.
However, the 3 I bought from NCIX a few months ago were packaged very robustly, and all 3 are fine, so I'm leaning towards the high volume of DOAs being due to poor packaging.
I agree, NCIX does a fantastic packaging job. That's where I got my 4, but I still had 1 die on me recently.
