Default Hitachi Microdrive - White Box (Bulk)

I am wanting to order a Hitachi 1GB Microdrive for a Fuji 602S.

Reading up on Googlegear at resellerratings.com, it looks like a good choice for ordering from. They have an excellent price: 184.00. But, it is what they call "White Box". Their description of that is that it is Bulk, no fancy wrapping, may not have same manuals, etc.

Has anyone had experience purchasing this way? I would presume that if it is Hitachi Microdrive that is the important thing, and that there probably are not other components to worry about, or worry about the manual, for that matter.

Just looking for recommendations on pros/cons to ordering this product this way.

The drive is preformatted (for their factory testing) and you don't need any manual. Just insert and use... IBM sold their hardisk business to Hitachi and I doubt if the quality has changed (several of my microdrives are white-boxed).
