Buying a Western Digital hard drive from Newegg vs Western Digital dir

Recommended Posts

Buying direct is likely to give much better packaging for the drive. That packaging will better protect the drive en route to your place. Since mishandling is the biggest reason for premature drive failure, I'd suggest buying direct. I've never been impressed with how NewEgg packs bare drives for shipment. Bubblewrap with a handful of loose peanuts is *not* sufficient.

If you buy a retail packaged WD drive from newegg, it may wind up shipping directly from WD anyway.

A retail wd raptor i bought from newegg was dropped shipped from somebody else, i think it was WD.
