Yep, it's the last mile that most likely is the worst on the drive. Getting it onto the pallet, trucking it to the warehouse and then unloading / stacking the shelf at Best Buy probably have minimal jostling. Having the robots / people handling and poorly packing it at the Amazon warehouse and then the delivery driver most likely throwing it into the delivery vehicle is where the damage occurs.Agree with the others, buy at a local retail store such as Best Buy. Rough handling is what is the worst enemy of a hard drive. I would almost guarantee rough handling ordering online. There aren't many brands anymore but I would go for W.D.
