Dude... Amazon sucks. I buy the Seagates from Newegg and I usually get more than 1. I have bought 2,3,4 at a time and they always come in the bulk styrofoam OEM slots in a box. One drive at a time when the seller gets them by the case usually means cheap packaging. Banging a HDD around is bad news. Why the RED anyways ? I just saw you post the $109 Seagate in the other thread.
I would send back any HDD for a refund that came to me in an envelope. That's idiotic. You should leave them feedback.
