Poor Packing by Newegg 12/14/2013
Nothing but good things to say about WD Raptor hard drives. I've have 6 of them over the years, and they definitely beat standard 7200rpm drives. They are getting a little irrelevant with the SSD coming on, but still fill a small niche. They serve well, if they arrive intact.
If a mechanical drive bounces around in the box it's shipped in, it's no different than bouncing around without a box. The truth is it would be safer to not box it at all and trust the handlers to take better care of it than the illusion of protection.
I understand that it gets busy for Newegg during the holidays, but if they are not going to make a small effort to safe guard the products we purchase to arrive safely, then it only costs us loyal customers in the end. Putting an OEM drive [no packaging] in a box with out any protection form stopping it from moving inside the box, is not acceptable.
