    Absolutely not. I'm covered on 2 ends so I won't lose any money on this deal at all.

    I'm curious to see if other folks got the same service I did.

    Some sellers input the tracking number into Paypal directly. Wise policy, but it's not always obvious that it was done, so you may want to log into your account and look.

    Got shipping confirmation and tracking number. Packages are on their way.

    Anyone else get their stuff out?

    Some users are reporting that SATA drives are not detected by BIOS in motherboard. Please make sure to check the drives to see if they actually work with your computer/system's configuration.

    Why wouldn't the drives be detected?

    I understand some older motherboards may not see the drives, odd things happen, but why wouldn't modern systems (those that have a SAS2 backplane or SATAIII) not read the drives?

    What was the complaint?

    Marsh was reporting that some of his drives do not get detected at all in the BIOS screen, thus not being detected by the underlying operating system afterwards. I don't know the exact circumstances or the test environment that he runs, so I couldn't tell you more about the details.

    I received 8 SATA drives , plug in each drive to a Z97 system ( I know it is been working with 5 sata drives ),
    BIOS not detected the drive. only 2 sata drives was detected.

    I also try it in a HP 800 G1 PC , same problem.
    Bios is not detecting the drive, so it does not matter which OS to use.

    I recieved 8/10 6TB SATA disks today. All packaged cleanly and securely. Currently all 8 were immediately picked up by my server's SAS RAID controller without an issue


    Server Stats:
    M/B: Supermicro - X7DB8
    CPU: Intel® Xeon™ @ 2500 *2


    I have a SAS2 backplane and the drives are humming along doing preclear now in my Unraid. I am very pleased with the prompt shipping, packaging, and delivery of these drives. I have 2 more drives incoming and will report when the drives are done.

    Any one recall instances where pre-prod hardware shipped with timeout feature that causes it to stop working after a set amount of time? Asking because such features are not uncommon in pre-prod software. ZFS and ilk can tolerate one or two natural HD deaths at a time but I'd be awfully worried having a batch of these stop on me due to "programmed death".

    I have never heard of hardware being preprogrammed to die like that. Interesting.

    I've got bad sectors on one disk and one is not spinning up but is recognized by the system. This happens, got 14 days to work something out.

    The drives show on average 500 hours of being on. That's NOTHING for enterprise drives of this class. @patchate has agree to ship me some new drives as well as dibs on new ones coming in. Great seller, very pleased.

    I received two, and they both went through badblocks without issue. I did have to kapton tape off pin 3 on both of them to get them to work in my backup Norco 4224 case. I'm very happy with the seller.

    They will work fine. You just need an SFF-8087 to SFF-8482 cable to use with your controller. If you are powering the disks with sata power, you may need to tape off pin 3 like I had to do on mine. Here's my website that shows the pin and process.
