Should I trust this hard drive packaging?

PostWed Nov 18, 2020 9:23 pm

I just ordered a Toshiba X300 4TB hard drive (HDD) for my project's original camera files (ran out of room on a 2TB SSD so I'll make that the Optimized Media drive). It was shipped only in its minimal shelf packaging and stuffed in my mailbox. No bigger box with bubble wrap/peanuts, etc. This makes me nervous that this has been tossed around without any cushioning and could fail sooner.

Are my concerns legitimate?

Thanks.
