    Where should I post the series no? Just like irage suggested, ensure it's sealed in Anti - static bag.
    What capacity is the hard disk?

    Some windows system files are last modified in 2002, so nothing wrong with that. Those who are using W2k or WXP can check their own Windows folder. For the actual date of Windows installation, u might need to run Pcinfo or check the registry.

    Btw, can PM me the store name too?

    If what the original poster said is accurate and true, there is totally NOTHING wrong to mention the name of the shop against you as they would not have any cauase of action against you.

    We would all be grateful if you could post the name of the shop here - it would also help if they dispute your claims and refuse to change the HDD for you.

    If otherwise, kindly pm me

    It is the most kiasu shop lah. heheh still a few units and on 3 difference floors too so you can miss it!. They start out selling all the blank CDs accessories..etc. cutting all the competitions there heh..then in the last 2 yrs or so..they start muscling in on more hardware too...They are not that bad, they might have exchange the HDD with someone or use it to diagnos another system and then put it back into their inventory to sell. Wrong yes. but if you have your proof, they should be more then willing to trade one back to avoid being reported for doing this. Let's hope home got his exchange. Don't blame the shop too quickly,, for all you know it was a staff that did this. By reporting this, they might start their own investigation as to how this happen. A fat owner with a fat gold cladding rolex wife to feed? heheh you bet they will not let who ever did this get away with it or break their rice bowl heheheheheh

    Went to the shop again after work, spoken to the store manager, explained to him the problem & demanded for refund. Firstly, he refused to believe what I said & rather blame Seagate for lacking of QC, hence he challenged me to contact Seagate for validation.
    I got pist-off & told him he should also play part of the responsibility & being more customer oriented.

    The conversation started to heat up, and he even suspected me as the culprit of the problem. I blowed-up & told him off infront of other customer around the shop.
    Then he soften his tone & offer for 1-to-1 exchange & I rejected his offer & told him I deserve better as time & effort wasted unnecessarily.....

    At last, I walked out the shop with double capacity with no extra top up.

    Was it sealed in Anti - static bag? I believe not.

    Can PM me the name of that shop?
    Just learned from other shop all Seagate hard disk manufactured locally doesn't seal in Anti - static bag.

    erm, just fyi, thats not an indication of how old the harddisk is. I have files in my XP that states last modified in 1998 (if you look in c:/windows/fonts you'll probably see that too). That being said, someone probably either tested something on the disk or perhaps it's a return by another customer.

    True. My Internet Explorer version 6.0 shows "Thursday, August 29, 2002, 3:41:24 AM"
    I believe all people using this version can find the same properties.

    I have a Winfax installed in my office computer, its "Tuesday, February 27, 1996, 11:43:36 AM"

    But for sure, the harddisk isn't brand new. Got a good deal for the exchange

    Now... time to check if your "new" 160GB harddisk is a used one. Pray hard... 320GB may just come your way..
