WD stipulate certain packaging for return too, but we've always had the right packaging on hand to date. The Amazon packaging is basically some bubble wrap in a book sized box.

Amazon obviously looked at the stastically cheaper delivery costs v returns, that it's more profitable to send out (cheaper postage rates) book size packaging (with little protection) and deal with higher returns (given they have all the automated systems for that in place).
