One Star due to very bad packing!!!!
on 12 March 2013
Not happy with Amazon this time.
How can they ship a HDD without any padding? Simply shipped it like they would ship a book. It was inside a carton box just bigger than the HDD and this one wrapped in the usual Amazon easy opening carton.
Does Amazon know how fragile a HDD is? I called their helpline asking about this strange way of packing a HDD and the lady on the other side put me on hold.
After a few minutes she tells me that this is shipped inside the same box as it come from the manufacturer.
Well yes it does, but Amazon certainly doesn't get them shipped to their warehouse in a one by one basis?! They certainly receive them in huge quantities, properly packed. Certainly the box with many HDDs is so heavy that it won't be tossed around like a single HDD that a white van driver throws around.
As said not happy and won't buy any HDDs from Amazon again unless I know that they pack them properly.
Needless to say that mine didn't even come out of the box. Went straight back to Amazon.
Full refund received and as usual a pleasure to deal with.
