Will it work after Amazon packaging??

Scott Roberts, Amazon
27 May 2010
  • Summary: Length:: 0:44 Mins It worked when I installed it. I'm keeping it. I guess it would have been sent out again to the next "hassle free packaging" customer if I had returned it. UPDATE: i subsequently ordered a similar drive and amazon used good packaging.

Amazon packaging is horrible!

J. Mak, Amazon
27 May 2010
  • Summary: I never thought I'd write a review about the packaging, but this was really really a poor packing job. The reviews that say that the packaging has been fixed no longer seems to be true. The bare drive arrived loose in a box with no cushion and was left on my doorstep in the rain.

Terrible packaging

PrintsJim "Jim", Amazon
27 May 2010
  • Summary: I have always found Western Digital hard drives to be reliable but the manner in which I received my latest purchase from Amazon was inexcusable. The hard drive was shipped completely loose in a box with no protective packaging whatsoever. It rattled around inside the box.

do NOT tolerate poor amazon packaging/padding

Federalist One "second amendment: original ho..., Amazon
27 May 2010
  • Summary: REJECT all packages lacking PADDING ON ALL SIX BOX SURFACES meeting or exceeding UPS standards. I have ZERO confidence in electronics received in any other condition. I continue to exchange the item until amazon can be bothered to correctly package it.

Hideous Packaging Method

Directed Energy, Amazon
27 May 2010
  • Summary: As of 20 Jan 2010, Amazon is using inadequate packaging (see photo) for this hard drive "Western Digital 1.5 TB Caviar Green SATA Intellipower 32 MB Cache Bulk/OEM Desktop Hard Drive WD15EADS". Instead of using some sort of all encompassing, form adapting beads i.e.

I did not care for the Packaging....

M. Miller "M.D. Miller", Amazon
4 March 2010
  • Summary: I think this drive is functioning well and has to this point given great service. Problem is that its the second drive. I had to return the first one as it was not functioning correctly after being shipped in Amazons 'hassle free' packaging.

DOA

Brian Crocker, Amazon
23 February 2010
  • Summary: "Amazon Has Certified That This Packaging Is Frustration-Free" -- My frustration started with the package and escalated both when I opened it and when I attempted to use the drive. It came in the anti-static standard bag with an invoice wrapped around it, that's it, nothing else.

Bubble wrap again, come on. Great product, bad packaging for now!

M. Lasota, Amazon

  • Summary: Packaged in bubble wrap again (about 1 week ago, around Feb 1st)!!! So after yet another call to customer service to explain that the packaging was improper and I wanted a replacement for my replacement because the original shipment and the replacement were both packaged improperly, customer service...

Fine price on a fine drive but the packaging is ridiculous...

B. Smith, Amazon
21 January 2010
  • Summary: Drive so far seems fine but it's packaged in a small box with a tiny bit of popped bubblewrap. I really don't see how Amazon thinks that this is actually protecting the drive. Amazon needs to figure out how to properly package these things.
