Update: the seller has since gone silent and hasn't responded to me since Friday. Anyone else have any luck?

Got mine today and they were 2016. Messaged Seller and they responded an hour later offering a $5 refund per drive. The lowest offer they would accept on the drives are $120

They never responded to me, I'd take a few bucks back.

I messaged again and got the same result as Seion above.

Seems like the seller has been delivering based on sale price instead of listing - ie, if low offer accepted on the higher priced drive listing, you get the drive with stats that matches that low price instead of what you think you ordered. Doesn't feel like the right way to do it, but I'm not a merchant.

I bought a bunch of these from this seller a month ago at $110 and received drives from 2016. I just ordered a bunch more and can confirm that the seller will not go below $120.

My second order of 8 drives arrived matching many of the recent reports - 2016 DOM and 32k hours, vs the listing 2017 and 27k. Additionally, one of them was bad (1 out of 18 total though isn't at all unreasonable in my book). Messaged the seller Tuesday morning proposing a $5 adjustment per drive, which the seller agreed to--plus the return.

Haven't seen the refund yet though. Assuming it and the return go through, I'm still pretty positive about the transaction. The He10s are surprisingly quick for rust spinners.

I just got a response after sending a second message and they gave me $10 per drive which sounds more reasonable. So I paid $109 a piece for them. He said that the warehouse made the mistake and sent the wrong DOM...

Oh crap!.... I Don't need more. I Don't need more. I Don't need more. I Don't need more...
ARGH! In for 4 more...
No kidding... This screwed up my entire weekend.

Was sitting down to finish ordering the DoomCube parts for the Voron 3d printer project.

But now, do I order another dozen disks or so...

Damn it...
