Hmm... Do you know where it was manufactured from? (Thiland, Singapore, China)

Singapore is where their HQ is at and I believe most drives start shipping from there when they are new. Then they will be made at some of the other places when the demand increases. I just wonder if there is a QC issue at one of the other plants.
