Summary: That bottom part has no guard so the disk is open for anything to get caught on it. I'm not sure if this is normal, but I'm not sweating it since the pc booted up, let me install ubuntu on it, and runs well so far. I also bought the warranty. I'm glad I did!
Summary: These drives are shipped in the un-boxed condition. I have no issues to date, but only time will tell if they will meet their expected life. The price was good, so it is worthwhile to run these in a RAID config, just in case there is a problem.
Summary: Okay, received the drive but it wasn't set up to use even though the package had been opened and they didn't send a setup cd with it. Luckily I had a old wd setup cd that worked for it. It's up and running.
Summary: Purchased this Hard Drive,but I can't get it to work in my computer. I believe I should have asked if it came preloaded with XP software,not upset with them will keep & see if some how I can get it to Reboot! Will order again from them. TY
Summary: I bought two of these drives from Amtech. The add lists them as WD Blue drives. Thats not what showed up. I received 5 year old WD drives. Besides the Blue label not being there and the drives coming as an open box item, I have been satisfied with them.
