    No, no, hell no :)

    He can print the label for you in high res, red, green or black, which ever is your favourite ;)

    Seems dubious to me: low resolution pictures.

    Seller may not be IT literate: goods described as: red, green & black. SATA 1. 5400 RPM.

    Other goods sold in last 12 months: High Power Strength Remote Control Mobile Phone Jammer (transition closed) $70, electronic cigarette $8. nicotine cartridge $5 (slow shipping), Hello Kitty dock for cell phone $2.25 (I want one of these! :D) & Xbox remote $5

    Seller supposed to be located in USA (?),
    item located in USA & Japan. Shipping from China/Hong Kong/Taiwan.
    Has free local pick up on postage details?
    You could wait for feedback from recent purchases if you like.

    I think I will pass on this one.
    If anyone purchases one, I'd be interested in feedback.
    (Maybe a WL drive with a WD sticker is my gut feeling)

    very very not correct on my understanding:D

    this seems the account was zombie account and got snatched by a "scammer" :D. <-- this is just my thought

    on my ebay experience, never and never the seller change gear on selling item abruptly.
    you can see the account is a zombie account that wake and sell the drives 6T suddenly.

    I would not buy.. better safe than sorry :p

    one a red flag, the item is no local US and the seller resident in US . hahah, what a heck!!
