So my question is basically would this indicate a known bad lot of hdd's, as it did seem like they just threw mine in the bin and gave me a new one,
or does it cost more to actually spend the time testing it than to just send me back a new part..??
seems a little odd, but im not complaining, just curious! if anyone has any idea if this is normal procedure or not, let me know, if so then i could replace a whole bunch of parts that I thought I would have no chance of ever doing.....
