    Hi Maverick, Yeah..I know how it feels to find that the part you are getting is a recycled part. When I RMA my Deathstar 22GXP a month back, I got back the same drive with a big orange sticker "Serviceable Ued Component"!! Could it be that drives made in China have a diffrent casing?Just a guess... :?:

    Sorry, forgot to post this. Mine is the 60GB version with 2MB cache. One notable diffrence is that the breather hole is covered by the front sticker.

    Hege, I also got the 60GB model of the Deskstar 180GXP. Got it for free when I RMA my Deathstar 60GXP.. The casing in which my drive comes in is quite diffrent from the one shown in the photo. Mine has a cap right in the middle of the drive. Not sure why is it like this. I am also not sure if this is default, but my drive had AAM disabled out of the bag and it's made in China instead of Thailand.
