BARE DRIVE! OEM NOT retail package


from CA  -  Heavy Duty User

I have not even installed the drive yet. It is a bare drive in an antistatic bag wrapped in bubble wrap. The description for this item does not mention it is OEM or Bare Drive. I tried to call customer service, but the girl that answered the phone is clueless. I asked her why the item is not listed as OEM or Bare Drive and all she could do was ask me if it was defective. VERY Disappointed with Adorama...

Great buy


from Salt Lake City, UT  -  Heavy Duty User

WD black units are always great work horses. Just remember these are barebones. You need to have the screws and cables to hook up.
