A few thoughts on this;

1) Don't make public posts questioning a vendors integrity prior to making
a good effort to settle the issue privately. This will include waiting more
than two business days for a reply.

2) DOA happens on old drives, so do a dozen other end user mess ups that
keep them from spinning up or working. The drive could be fine, and you
just have a wimpy power supply or a jumper set wrong.

3) Look at the ad terms carefully, not wishfully. Does it say 100% tested,
or just no DOA? If the latter it may be he has a stack of "mostly" good
drives and no desire to test them before shipping at $15 each.
