Pros: These babies went on sale for me at the perfect time. I needed to be able to duplicate my server storage for redundancy and could only use 2TB hard drives due to have a Windows Home Server v1 and these were perfect.
Cons: These things take forever to format regularly. It took 3 days on my first one. The next 3 I just quick formated. They were all perfectly fine.
Other Thoughts: I put four of these in a ProBox JBOD HDD enclosure and they are perfect for my server storage needs. I've always had good luck with Toshiba HDD's. Not sure what are happening with the other guys.
As for the packaging, they were sent in these bubble bags. They were perfect for transporting hard drives so much that I kept the 4 bags for later use just in case. I'm guessing NewEgg got tired of bare drive returns from shoddy packaging and decided to fix the problem.
