Advisory: Clients buying bare hard drives

scanIm currently building and configuring a 6 Terabyte NAS for a client and have taken delivery of the two hard disks for the small device (its going to be raid 1 to duplicate images files in the case of one disk failing)

Good to see that still pack bare hard disks correctly, an excess of layered well taped bubble wrap its one of the reasons I recommend them to my customers (I dont get any kickback from Scan btw).

The worst supplier for buying hard disks is Amazon, they pack the drives as if they were paperback books with no effective protection, they will of course refund you for obviously broken disks damaged in transit but the disks that appear to work “for a while” are not the kind you need. Never buy disks from Amazon.
