Hi, I have bought 2 Samsung HD203WI, 2 TB each, they are still almost empty, I have just began to use them and I am very happy, now I want to buy 2 more, but Error Scan utility of HD Tune show that 1 of them has 1 damaged block, do you think I have to worry about and ask for a replacement or only 1 is not enough?

I'd watch it & see if you get any more. I assume there is a decent warranty with these, not just 30 days or something....

Just keep good backups.
