I find it interesting that you guys are so bother about where the drives are made nowadays. Its all about qaulity control, and that can never be 100% as in the manufacturing process, the factory concern has only a relatively short time span to ensure that it has met a certain standard (pre-determined). Then the product get shipped. That's why there are such things as RMA, warranty, refund, exchange, etc
Furthermore, (a little off topic), we all know abit make pretty excellent mobo, and their factory is also in China. It is silly to suggest that because the workers there make less money will automatically equate to inferior product. There are some people who do take pride in the work they do, and in the tech industry, I think the quality of product manufactured in China, with Taiwanese company's reputation, and quality control, are pretty much right up there.
