I have to agree, it is possible that the product was swapped by the customer, or by an employee in the back, anything is possible, just goes to show you that you should always check product packaging carefully, and if you suspect something open it there in the store at the register. If the cashier wont allow it take your money elsewhere.

On a side note, when did WD start shipping retail drives in opaque packaging, I always thought they came in clear packs.

Not taking Worst Buy's side, but how does anyone know that the customer did not swap out the hard drive for the tiles? This is a case of he said, they said. No proof either way that Best Buy sold a box of tiles, or that the customer is the one who conned Best Buy to get a free hard drive.

The Best Buy Story reminds me about how a girl bought an iPod and found rocks inside. Twice!
