Summary: I got these in 2 seperate orders, both orders of 4 came in big boxes, stuffed with paper and the drives were in plastic shell. They weren't bouncing around or anything and all 8 drives worked with no issues from get go and still working well now.
Pros: I have 8 of these, 4 in 2 different servers. All work great in Linux mdraid 10
Summary: I don't understand why some customers complain that the drive goes clackety-clack loudly, unless they've installed it in a machine with a badly out-dated main-board. I installed mine without a hitch in Win 7 64-bit, with a sata III cable I ordered along with it, and am having no issues so far.
Pros: 2 TB of storage for a great price 5 year OEM warranty Runs quiet
