Summary: I've bought these drives before, and they work flawlessly. No complaints about the quality, speed, life or durability of these drives (I've dropped them more than I care to admit). However the shipping is beyond slow. It was meant to be here a week ago, and there is no sign of the drive. So buy this if you're not in too big of a rush, it really is a solid drive.
Summary: Drives were received well packaged. I installed one drive immediately and it started to re-create the RAID stripe set and has been working 24/7 since. The second drive was ordered as a spare and hasn't been installed as of yet. The only negative was that shipping cost was almost as much as one drive.

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.
