I think the reason they've done this is because the fleet of dead 500GB drives coming back are easily overhauled so their trying to make sure they're resaleable.....by further inconveniencing the already inconvenienced customer.

I will never buy a seagate ever again in my life,

Have had 2 500's and a 750 crap out after a couple weeks use,It was alright to rma them since they still had a store warranty too but i'm sitting on another 750 that went screwy.

Tried to rma it myself but got returned because it wasn't packed to their liking.

Still have a warranty till 2013 and cant rma the dam thing
