Sorry to hear that. I went through the same thing with Seagate a few years ago. Four out of five drives I purchased had to be replaced.

Alas it does happen. No manufacturer is immune to these types of events. Though historically if you look WD has a lower RMA rate then Seagate.

They still will take Priority in my purchases.

I have 3 drives that are anywhere from 5 to 3 years old or so, 2 wd cav black 640s and 1 cav blue 1tb sata 6, they work perfectly since the day I got them through multiple formats, and heavy use. Luck of the draw, it sux. Be nice if they offered a cross ship with any place that offers the same product so the customer does not have to directly ship it to them and have to wait.

EDIT; I will keep the comment on Egg, because I receive very bad packaged drives in the past, and I have now 2 box damages

I start to think it's New Egg the problem. On their forum they have many complain about HD not well packaged. This time I order Retail one, 4 of them and look at the box of the one defective, the corner is smash, I do a test with an old maxtor on another box, a drop on the floor is not enough to produce it, I have to give a swing, the corners are really hard. On Hard OCP they have a 24+ pages on peoples who return board to RMA been decline for huge line on CPU Sockets pins, things that need a screwdriver to do. Now if I return it to Egg, they gone say it was damage in transport, or I drop it my self. I can't use another box the serial is on the box too.

Yeah that might be the case, Drives are really sensitive to shock damage.

I would start buying mine elsewhere,

Yeah, Use NCIX. They do price matching.

Well big 90' turn this morning, I try another HD, same S...T , so I said I have a problem with the motherboard, I try the HD in another PC, bingo I can format it. So O return on my Corsair 800d, plud the drive directly on the sata connector , by passing the hot swap bay, BINGO, it work, so on 4 Back Planes conectors I have 3 not working. This 800D is the worst case I ever own, very close to my TJ-07

1- the Power button is now stock, I have to use the reset button, connected to the power connector of the MB.
2- The drives door cheaps Plastic pins are now broken, it hold only by the magnet
3- 3 on 4 Back Planes defectives

So it cost me $ 20 ( 2 shipping RMA )
I have $ 200 hold on my CC until WDC receive my HD.
WDC proceed non defective drives for nothing.
