What bad reviews? Anandtech and TR are both pretty high on them. They are definately aged, but they are by no means bad. The whole BSOD thing has been fixed for over a year now. This is a great drive.
Never trust on-line reviews at retailers. Too many paid shills to talk bad about other products. I've never understood the logic in reading what people (who rate their own knowledge, at newegg) who have absolutely no track record and can treated as an expert.
