RMA'd 7200.8, got 7200.11 Tags: Hard Drives Downgrade Storage Last response: March 12, 2010 11:58 PM in Storage Share builderbobftw March 12, 2010 7:58:16 PM The other day I RMA'd my 7200.8 400gb, and got a 7200.11 500gb. Is this an upgrade or a downgrade? Is the 7200.11 fast, or a crappy eco drive?

The 7200.11 drives come standard with a self bricking feature. It is really shnazzy. In all seriousness, before putting important data on it, do some research on the firmware issue, otherwise you will be sending it in for RMA again. m 0 l builderbobftw March 12, 2010 10:14:52 PM MAybe then tey will send me a 7200.12 lol. m 0 l Related resources RMA'd old card and got an upgrade - Forum I RMA'd a 660ti that was in SLI, got back a 760 - Forum Got back RMA'd Motherboard and bought a new PSU, computer won't turn on at all - Forum RMA'd a BFG 275 OCX got a normal 280 in return...bad deal? - Forum Can't find your answer ?
