    unfortunately the Samsung Spinpoint F1 (HD103UJ) hard drives in these enclosures have a bit of a chequered reputation on the internet...

    extra unfortunately since i took the risk and bought one anyway this week (just the drive, from Mwave, got tempted by the free OCZ flash drive), and managed to get a dodgy one... that makes 2 bad new hard drives in one week...

    on the bright side, Samsung are very cheery about exchanges... however it's once bitten twice shy for me on these drives, so i'm going for the refund and a different brand/model drive...
