Summary: Ordered five drives, they arrived quickly and undamaged, packaging OK but not great. Plugged them into a Proliant DL380 G5 and it immediately recognized them, working fine so far in a two drive RAID 1+0 and a three drive RAID 5. Didn't give 5 stars because the drives were advertised as "new" but one had "Demo" written on the label. Not a big issue - I'm planning on ordering 3 more to fill out my 8 bays.
