No paranoia. Quite often they do exactly this. You'll note that you  
can also find external drives a lot cheaper than internals  
(sometimes). Usually, if they have a surplus of a drive that they  
can't get rid of (nobody wants a 8mb cache on a 500gb drive) they put  
those into enclosures and sell them off.
