Nope. NewEgg is claiming that I "damaged" the drive somehow, but have  
yet to explain what the "damage" was, beyond the superficial /  
cosmetic damage received from putting it into my computer. I have  
escalated from the CS peon who can only follow the script to their  
boss. Have to see what Ms. Yang says.

For one thing, though, as I mentioned, Seagate says this was a USED  
drive and was originally sold as an external drive, apparently in a  
case. Someone, could have been NewEgg, could have been a customer,  
removed the drive from the case and NewEgg sold it as a "new" drive.
