    At least you dont have to deal with Quantum bigfoot drives, those were slowest of the slow.

    do that ^^^ and toss it in a bubble envelope. ive also seen them put between two pieces of cardboard then wrapped as described.

    This doesn't have pins, which is a plus. I just don't want to ship a $300+ CPU in something that doesn't look right. I was thinking an anti-static bag surrounded by bubble wrap, just like you mentioned. I'm glad that's been done before!
