    My understanding is that those drives support both 512e and 4Kn formats. Has anyone tried to reformat their drives to 4K sectors?

    Seller refunded for the defective drives today.
    Up until now he has not said anything about sending them back which is nice since that would be expensive to the US.

    Did you request the refund via ebay or by message? The first option asks me to create a shipping label.

    I did not run the formal process - i discussed with the seller and he did a partial refund via paypal.

    I've had returns that generate a label and then the seller just does the refund and the return is complete so I end up keeping the item. But this depends on what the seller wants to do.

    Anyone who ran badblocks had any issues?

    mine are running for about 2 weeks now and still not done... script failed to write logs so i am blind to progress :(
    Only thing I have is elapsed cpu time - and a single disk I restarted a week after with tmux which is now at 2/3 of the cpu time of the others and at

    Testing with pattern 0x55: 32.82% done, 162:23:16 elapsed. (0/0/0 errors)

    They will have passed the first test now, so I assume any bigger issue should show up on smart test, no?
