I’m a Western Digital client since many years and I really love it. Today I bought a NEW Western Digital Blue 1.0TB (WD10EZEX) CLOSED in the original transparent grey wrapper.
I’ve observed that the SATA data & SATA power, I mean, the copper of these connectors, seems a little bit scratched as if it had already been used and connected. I don’t know if WD uses this port to program and flash the firmware of its hard drive or why.
I’m 100% sure the hard drive is original, I’ve checked with others WD Blue I already have. Obviously, I haven’t use it!
I’ve uploaded an image so anyone can see what I’m talking about. It’s rare.
Thank you very much in advance!
