    Because I was able to order that drive at that price last Monday, it was delivered yesterday. It took about 22 hours to do a full format.

    No. I have no idea about the actual drive since it is an external case and I use the drive via USB. If I shucked the drive ???

    I had to.

    The two I purchased contained white label drives. Both needed the 3v tape mod w/my SeaSonic psu.

    Yea, i though you shucked the drives, but dont worry null confirm what i wanted to know.


    Thanks for the confirmation, i had hopes i didnt need to do this... but i guess cheaper comes at a cost for us.
