I ordered a batch of 7 HUS726060ALS641 6T drives off of eBay. They arrived slightly padded in a bulging Priority Mail box. Of the 7, 4 failed to even spin up, and the 3 remaining drives have impressively large error and byte counts. This one has ~6.4 million corrected errors and 910 TB read:
Does this look acceptable to anyone? I'm going to return the 4 failed drives, and I'm strongly leaning towards returning the 3 "good" drives as well.
