Bought at Amazon EARS 2TB and got 25 bad sectors, return it?

Hi fellow community members,

a few days ago i got two of my new WTD 2TB EARS harddisks. After filling each of them up i checked my smart program (Ubuntu Diskutility) and got 0 bad sectors for the first but 25 bad sectors already on my second WD hdd. Now i don’t know wether to return the bad sector drive because I don’t know how many bad sectors qualify for a return and replacement.

What about your experiences ? Is it legitimate to replace such a drive ?

Thank you for reading and (maybe) replying ^^.


25 Bad sector are not bad, but you can return a drive for 1 bad sector, if they are brand new, they should not have even one.
