    Samsung attempt at cost cutting? Or a cunning fake?

    Greetings.

    I spotted these images posted on another website, i must admit i did have a good giggle.

    Packaging looks legit:>












    I feel sorry for the poor sodd whom buys a desk from IKEA spends hrs attempting to set it up, only to find 2 bolts missing.

    OK, so we have 320G and 500G external HDD caddies.............. standard USB connection and DC external power supply connection................ what the hell are the two bolts for???????????????? There appears to be four small screw holes to secure the cover?

    Apparently there are fakes on the market

    I find that interesting, because if the little lemon chappies are prepared to rip eachother off then the DOJ, FBI, MPAA and RIAA might as well go home and take up crochet. It does something to explain why they went for NZ rather than HK, even though HK is where Megaupload's HQ is/was.

    Nice to see the gunge making a comeback ....... I remember when it was used to attach the cover CDs/DVDs to computer mags.
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    Perhaps to add weight? Was this being sold as a spinning HDD, which would weigh considerably more than the SSD that is hooked up?
