sorry they wiped your..... brand new empty hard drive?

You can also 			****		 up and misalign the (magnetic) mechanical components, thereby rendering the hard drive unusable.   
That said, OP is a moron for not once thinking that the combination of ordering a powerful magnet and a hard drive at the same time from the same place and not considering that perhaps they might get delivered in the same box by a person who is either a) an idiot who is uneducated about the effect of magnets on sensitive electronic components or b) not really getting paid enough to give a 			****		 about it might be in fact a bad idea.

Ebay items are shipped from the seller, so the fact that they both shipped them at the same time and through the same company isn't something you'd expect.
User avatar #12 to #11 - scant (11/19/2013) [-]
Then that means that either OP bought them from the same seller, or he made up the whole story. Either way he's still a moron.

Glad I'm not the only one thinking this.

You could sue for that.
User avatar #13 to #3 - improbablyyourdad ONLINE (11/19/2013) [-]
No you can't.

You can sue for anything in the world. Doesn't mean you'll win.

Goods were damaged before client received them, therefore he received faulty product. But since it's not manufacturers fault he'd have to sue mail/delivery company.
User avatar #19 to #18 - improbablyyourdad ONLINE (11/19/2013) [-]
They did their job, not only that he should have realized what he was doing, how can you possibly put the blame on the delivery service when they probably don't even know what's in the package.

It's true it would be an asshole move to sue them, but in the end you got broken product, not what you were promised.

well at least one of your toys still works

I recall dissasembling a HDD. Its encased in metal, that means all outside magnetism parses trough without affecting the inside. HDD itself also contains insanely powerfull neodymium magnets, they help operate the reading/recording arms. The point is no damage could have been done, OP is a faggot.

Also, what billybong said in #8.

It was a Magnet, that could easyily lift 300kg, compressed to a size smaller than my hand. well maybe it's a coincidence, that the hdd didn't work, but I really think it's possible for such a magnet to damage a hdd.
User avatar #17 to #16 - Einsty (11/19/2013) [-]
The plates themselves are rather brittle, it could have fallen down. Either way, if a faulty HDD has arrived, you should communicate with the seller to negotiate replacement.
#22 to #17 - awesomechardey (11/19/2013) [-]
Yeah, I already got a new one. Well I tought it could have been the magnet. Seemed logical to me.

>I also orderd one of those super strong neodym magnets, just for fun

i remember when I decided to buy super strong neodym magnets just because. Oh wait I dont.

They're actually really cool, and not that expensive. Plausible story, I'd do it. But I'm not retarded enough to order them on the same day. That being said, the magnet shouldn't have done **** to the platters, unless they had data written to them. Why the **** would you order a pre-written disk anyway? In which case, OP is retarded, and even if the magnet did somehow pull the platters too close to the needle, he can return it.

TL;DR, you're gay and so is OP.

I think you can report her for **** like that
#24 to #23 - awesomechardey (11/19/2013) [-]
I won't. She is nice.
User avatar #25 to #24 - skeptical (11/19/2013) [-]
Now I'm conflicted

If the HDD was properly packaged, there should be at least 1cm of air all around the HDD so it can't get knocked. That should be enough distance to keep any sensetive components safe from the magnets.

Besides, To really screw a HDD you need an AC electromagnetic field.. a static magnic could at worst corrupt data (that isn't even there yet)
