              This review is not of the hard drive because i NEVER received it! I ordered this item over 2 weeks ago and paid for 2 day shipping. Part of my order (RAM) shipped. When I contacted customer service I got every excuse in the book from, "not in stock" to "the item is coming from a different warehouse" to "this item is discontinued". I am very dissatisfied overall of how crucial handled my order and I will be demanding a refund from the money they promptly took as soon as I placed my order. Maybe I should have said my credit card was discontinued or coming from another location to see how they like that. I will never again shop from and will be discouraging all of my associates from shopping here as well.
