It does seem to be a turd, but I wonder if that's because it's shock resistance blows. A lot people here are going to rip it out of the case so it might be decent as an internal or NAS drive.

The Egg reviews are less bad. Maybe Amazon's shipping is actually worse.

12 bad reviews on it :( all failing drives... sounds poorly made of handled at some point

I don't know why people put so much weight on customer reviews. It could be that they sold 1200 drives and only have a 1% failure rate. It could be 12 people who don't know the difference between a display port and a usb port. It could be that the company didn't buy fake reviews like almost everybody else does.

With that said, there was a 4tb for $125 earlier in the week so this isn't a very hot deal.

I am hoping for the 4TB at $79 like we used to have before the flood. (2TB for $79)
