First thing to look for is to observe the packaging the drive arrives in. It is industry practice to ship one or more drives in boxes that are made to perfectly fit the drive. Inside the box, the drive should be suspended with two plastic holders. These holders suspend the drive and dampen any drops the package may experience during transit. (Bulk orders (15+) may be shipped in a single larger box with foam cut-out arrays).
Secondly, when installing the drives, make sure that your hands are clean. Give them a wash, or better yet, wear gloves. Avoid transferring finger/hand oil to the drives so that hot-spots aren't created.
Thirdly, once the drives are installed, give them a full, long format. You can run 1, 3, 5, (or even more) passes on the disks. This ensures that every single sector of the drives gets written to. Once the format is complete, look up the SMART data, and check the values for anything alarming. If a drive suffered damage in shipping, now is when it may be noticeable. Compare the values to your other drives. Start-up times, head parks and so fourth may vary slightly so there's nothing to be worried about a little deviation there, but pay attention to failed reads, reallocated sectors, and RUEs.
Granted, all of this advice should be taken with a grain of salt since SMART values are not the silver bullet to predict drive failure, but this testing should be a good indicator on whether or not a drive is ready for production use.
Above all else, remember that backups are your friend.
UPDATE: After a long back-and-forth I was finally sent a brand new drive which functions fine now. Upgraded from 1 to 3 stars.
Sixteen months later one of the drives started failing by showing multiple I/O errors and bad sectors. Well, I thought, this happens, the WD website shows that my drive is still covered for another couple of years, I will just get a replacement. I contacted WD customer support hoping to get a new drive under warranty. Nope. They requested my Amazon invoice and after looking at it replied by saying that since I got this drive from a third party seller, it should be covered by seller's warranty and they are denying manufacturers coverage. Hardware does fail and there is nothing unusual about it, but denying warranty for such a reason is simply ridiculous.
Credits to Amazon's spectacular customer service - they helped me to resolve this issue quickly and to my complete satisfaction. Needless to say that I will not be buying WD drives ever again.
First, the website for RMA was terribly broken. I eventually gave up trying to RMA online and moved on to phone support.
Over the phone, Western Digital refused to RMA the drive despite it being purchased directly from Amazon. They have the drive misidentified as being sold as part of a piece of hardware (like a NAS bundle, I guess). This doesn't make a lot of sense anyway since WD still manufactured the drive, but regardless it was incorrect. I eventually got escalated and was able to RMA, but this was after quite a fight.
I am now waiting on a return drive, but clearly Western Digital's warranty is all about advertising upfront, and rejecting when the time comes. I will not be purchasing any more hard drives from Western Digital.
I just purchased a second drive and did some testing on it while blank and uploaded the results under customer images to the right.
