Bought two and immediately ran Bitlocker on both to force a write to the whole drive. One worked fine, and the other reported some bad sectors. Following up on the bad one with chkdsk caught a huge number and the scan virtually stopped making progress.
Newegg is accepting it for refund without a restocking fee, and at least I caught it before there was data to be lost. Remember to do a full write to new HDDs to catch these things before it matters.
