    That's not really true about newegg usually people give them high marks and still do even with bad drives=oem's,I do think new egg did have a batch of bad drives however and that caused some of the problems. the thread is very good about this 120gig drive and even tells you the difference between three and two platter on the 120gig. There is nothing wrong with the newer 120giger retail drives or even older ones,it seems that the oem's were mishanded bouced around and they broke like any drive would

    That's usually what happens. I handle a lot of drives and can say that OEM batches are a bit more sensitive to mishandling. The last thing I'd ever want to see is fedex or ups etc bringing me a big box of them.
