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.
Summary: I ordered two and they showed up both dead on arrival. Installed them in my server and one had the orange light flashing and the other was just a solid orange light. I tried them in every drive bay, I even opened the server up and swapped SAS cables around from the RAID controller and nothing.
Summary: The RAID array rebuilt around this new drive without issue. I am knocking off a star because the firmware of the drive is not current, but this is a minor issue that should really only be a half star.
Summary: Misleading Ad... Product is not "New" meaning that they are data center pulls just like everyone else out there is selling. I have gone thru tons from different vendors - they are ok for what they are but have tons of hours on them.

Summary: The order arrived in a timely manner. The packing wasn't the greatest. The electrostatic bags weren't full length as if they tore them open to test then placed back in and put a new sticker to close them up. Popped the drives into my DL585 and set up a raid 5 with no issues.
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.
