By my previous viewing of the pics in that auction - yes, somebody
ripped the platters out of the HDD, breaking the arms the R/W heads were
mounted on. Said heads were left dangling.

IIRC the auction copy indicated something had been done to the PSU as
well. There was a close-up of some wires soldered to some spade lugs,
but I don't recall seeing a good photo of the PSU itself.

It didn't sell, so there's a good chance it'll be listed again in a few
days. They tend to give things a few shots before they stop relisting.
