I have no idea why they would ship it like this. It was not shipped in a box, not even a padded envelop, just big brown envelope :-/
The SSD box looks okay, but it does make a rattling sound when I move around. I am going to be be building this rig tomorrow, so hopefully the SSD won't be DOA.

dont worry, unless the mailman can exert 1000G's of force then the ssd should be ok.

paper is a natural at anti shock if you didn't know.

thats why RMA tell you to ship it in a brown paper bag.

USPS, i haven't the slightest clue how they do small.

You don't want your package beat around?
You realize each package is throw on a "extendo"-dropped onto a large conveyor-sorted and throw onto an even larger conveyor - sorted again and throw into a shoot-on to rollers or another conveyor.

Along with thousands more packages where it will get smashed and/or dropped we can try to prevent jams that cause these damages....but it happens
None of that is the couriers fault, it's just something that happens in the sort facility.

the total time a package is touched by a human is only MAYBE 30seconds from an inbound trailer to an outbound trailer....

i guess, USPS varies,

my USPS only delievers small packages, mail, and magazines.

Not really much opportunity to get beat up in my community.

only thing i hate is fedex around here, they deliver to my place at 9pm

As noted retail packaging boxes aren't typically acceptably strong enough - as the OP's box shows, to be used as the outer packaging for shipment. (FYI- Chinese cardboard is horribly weak compared to most cardboard produced in the U.S.). Retail packing is typically for display purposes - NOT for commercial shipment. Yes if HP shipped some DIMMs in an envelope with insufficent protection then they too exercised very poor judgment unless the plastic box was quite sturdy.

Feel free to check UPS/FEDEX shipping requirements for insurance coverage. Neither of the above examples would likely be covered by insurance for damage as the packaging was insufficient to provide reasonable protection. In addition throwing a delicate or heavy item in a large box without proper dunnage would also not be covered by insurance for damage. The shipper is responsible for using proper containers, dunnage and preventive measures otherwise the insurance coverage is voided because the shipper did not meet reasonable nor prudent shipping requirements.

Hah I received my Sabertooth 990FX wrapped in a sheet of cardboard and the actual box had dents and the corners were tearing. Newegg is still great though.

Most of my USPS packages are either a small box with foam or a padded envelope depending on the item, most times its been Priority 5-10day shipping, occasionally Express 3day via Ebay sellers or B&H (items from B&H were shipped from their warehouse via UPS/FedEx to USPS and then forwarded) - I've had TIM, memory, laptop keyboards etc shipped in padded envelopes, ssds were doubled boxed - but there was always more than one, so not sure how they would've packed a single dive, hard drives bare in anti-static bag packed in box with foam, fans wrapped in nothing more than bubble wrap and a thing piece of cardboard - not even in a box, just wrapped with a shipping label slapped on, phones have been doubled boxed - I would image tho if it was just a plain cardboard box, that's all it would ship in; the idea of secondary packaging isn't always for added protection but for obscuring what the package contains.

I'ved also had a laptop purchased via Provantage that was shipped from China in retail packaging to the US(which was nothing more than a pretty box with the laptop suspended in the centre of the box by a foam cradle), where it was then doubled boxed by Provantage and forwarded via DHL.

The shipper is responsible for using proper containers, dunnage and preventive measures otherwise the insurance coverage is voided because the shipper did not meet reasonable nor prudent shipping requirements.

Neccessary packaging depends entirely on the method of shipping and the expected stress it is most likely to be subjected to - for instance, UPS subjects packaging to 20+ foot drops... I would think here OP's box would be double boxed. Double boxed wouldn't be necessary for a local courier picking up an item from a warehouse and dropping it to your house.

OPs box also looks pretty deep to me, comparing it to the box my Samsung SSDs came in, that box leaves quite a bit of room for crushing, not to mention the internal structures that held the drive vs the very slim but very sturdy retail box Samsung uses.
Who's to say Newegg didn't ship the drive in more packaging? It's not entirely out of the realm of possibilities that the item wasn't repackaged after it left Newegg's warehouse.

The SSD box looks okay, but it does make a rattling sound when I move around. I am going to be be building this rig tomorrow, so hopefully the SSD won't be DOA.

Meanwhile in third world countries...

In fact one time I bought an Athlon X2 OEM from Newegg. The CPU didn't even come with a box. Just a simple plastic cover from AMD and packed inside of an envelope. Works just fine.

lmao...just watched that. That was pretty funny.

so what if the box is crumpled? what are you crying about? you gonna trow it out anyways right? as long as the SSD is free from any damage you should be happy, the SSD is fine right?

jeez people, crumpled box is that big of a deal now?
post #100 of 174

When I purchased my SSD last year from Newegg, it shipped in a padded box. My HDs as well. All worked fine.

 

Also, I heard the horror stories about Amazon's drives shipping in big, unpadded boxes. When I bought my HDs from them, however, they had just started improving things and again, they worked great. It seems this year, though, the ranks are reversed. O_o

I just bought a 256 GB M4. I thought about going with Newegg because of how great and quick their shipping is but I ended up going with Amazon instead. Looks like that was the right choice, currently.
