Well I don't know how it's elsewhere, but most etailers don't sell HDDs with packaging, basically nothing except the hard drive, no screws, no papers. I've been searching but didn't found an answer, i'm just curious because I pretty much made my own answer at the beginning and stick with it for years, which is that HDDs This is just by the way nothing really important. Thought about this because when I went to get a package into one etailer distribution center one weird noob guy opened the package up in front of everybody and talked about where's the original package looking at the HDD stuffed in cardboard-like paper, yes that was all in the etailers defacto cardboard shipping box. When he was getting annoying because I was just behind him waiting in line and didn't had time for this BS I told him this is that this is because it's sold as "OEM whatever" bulk, there's nothing of importance in the box and it's a bit cheaper. The guy had weird facial behavior walking out of the shop like was angry at something. I have never seen a packaged HDD in real life. Is that just because I don't go to random mainstream overpriced tech store to get my hardware?
