    shit happens
    newegg's way of shipping hdds (wrapped in bubble wrap + packaging peanuts) isn't helping either

    yeah, i know. i just love that i've never had a problem with any WD drives i've used, but my first Seagate based on some sack riders here turned out to be DOA. just a funny coincidence.

    Yea, it seems that way to me too... 90% of the reviews I read over there on Seagate drives are about DOA's.
