When I had a few with a problem the seller said that "1 drive was bad, the other 2 were fine, but they were still sending replacements."They are a really nice company. Just received my 5 replacements today. 3 were for sure bad, 2 were probably enclosure related. They didn't care.
One on my 2TB drives from them had a firmware of "DONTSHIP"[emoji15]I just picked up 2 of these from the same seller. Running burn in tests now. They are running different firmware from each other though, and HDTune reports different drive features and different SMART data parameters. One of them is also faster by ~20MB/s, but it's fast enough for my purposes. Not sure what's up with that...
Do you think the would cross ship a replacement? I didn't notice until last night and it already has data on it.You should definitely return it. I have been emailing back and forth with then and decided to not order my latest batch of 200 drives as the order they got in had so many versions of firmwares and craziness. The manufacturer they got them from this time said that it's a mixed bag and they are not happy with them either. Surprised they sent some out to customers though.
Big disappointment in this batch and hope next one is better.
MK70A840, its a rebranded Hitachi HUA723020ALA641.Which firmware is the good one you're running? The ones I have seem to be 06.01E.0 and 00.0D2K3.
