If I read his post correctly, **Special K** stated that the hard drive sticker on the cover of fives Seagate hard drives lists the model as ST3500320AS. However, when he checks the bios, through utilities, or through 3ware Management software-3DM2, those five drives are indicated as ST3500820AS.
An attempt at fraud would not be easy for Newegg to accomplish. Visible traces would potentially exist on the hard drive covering where adhesive from the old sticker used to reside. Further if the Anti-static bag should no signs of tampering, (again, adhesive sticks to these bags even when removed), then it does not point to the distributor, but a error originating at the factory.
