That is the most common problem I've seen on FC drives. It isn't the 
shipping usually though. The e-recyclers just yank them out of the 
arrays and toss them in a pile. They are pulling a hundred plus drives 
out of a rack. They don't waste time being careful or anything. The ic's 
are usually recessed far enough to survive but, not always. Those 
inductors stick out and are fragile.  Every bad FC drive I have bought 
off ebay came with either broken inductors on the circuit board or a 
broken FC connector.  Every single one was claimed a working pull. Of 
course it was working before pulled so, technically they weren't lying 
in a way.
