    The platters are supposed to be covered with a shiney magnetic surface. A thick outter ring of it has been stripped away by the head so you can see the white card behind it.

    oh good christ.
    i just assumed that for SOME reason, (maybe performance, maybe cost) they didn't have anything on the outer portion of the platter. but wow, that's amazing.

    I have one of those, of course it's an RMA replacement from a few years ago.
