Too subtle I guess.

You posted that you have hardware problems with your brand new, 10 day old HD, and asked if you should return it. I guess I'm saying the answer is pretty obvious.

Yes. Just my 2 cents from the available info.

the 2 bad sectors wouldn't worry me as much, but I'd monitor it over time. I have to admit I've never scanned a brand new HD for bad sectors. It was really the sometimes showing up in BIOS and sometimes not - I'd RMA the drive for that happening to me, personally. I'd hate to run it for a few months, get everything installed just right, then BAM.

But if you do really good backups, you'll be covered at least.
