Default Re: Hard Drive Reliability >2TB

One thing I heard also is that newegg packaging for HDD is insufficient. I mean, Fedex/UPS/USPS are not really known for their gentle care of your package. I've had some throw mines over my fence (7') into my backyard despite the fragile sticker. If a HDD was inside, I would expect early failure. This is where buying local can help as computer shops usually get theirs by pallet, with a little less shaking...
