My 1tb Hitachi Deskstar crashed in transit when I moved from California to Nevada. I flew but I take apart my Tower and put everything back in it's boxes I received them in put them all in a big box and sent them.
Few days later box arrived, I put it all back together and it wouldn't post so I took the drive to Fry's and they announced it dead. Happened a few weeks after WD flooded so HDD's were expensive so my dad just gave me the Maxtor out of his Dell dimensions 4800 or something like that.
Edit: It's nice to see the price's have dropped alot over the past months
