Seagate Lowers Warranty Period from 5 to 3 Years on Some Desktop Hard Drives

Seagate, the biggest hard drive manufacturer, has announced today that effective January 3, 2009, the company will be making some important changes to its limited warranty terms for selected drives. The warranty period for consumer electronics (Seagate Barracuda 7200 included), notebook (Momentus 7200 and Momentus 5400 included) and personal storage bare drives sold to Seagate Authorized Distributors will be changed from 5 years to 3 years. Seagate believes that the new warranty period and terms better reflect current industry standards. Seagate enterprise class drives and Seagate and Maxtor external retail products that have 5-year warranty periods will not be affected by this change. Please take a look at the Seagate Warranty Matrix for more information.

Re: Seagate gonna reduce Warranty from 5 to 3 Years :(

I have seen most of the Hard drives conk off within 3 years..and the once we get as replacement conk off even faster..
5 Year warranty is/was a boon..Sad that they are taking a step in the wrong direction..

Re: Seagate gonna reduce Warranty from 5 to 3 Years :(

That sad news.. damn them.. I just hope Seagate and WD are talking in the backend to reduce the warranty and thereby save costs.. afterall there is nobody here to check them unlike the US if they do decide on such an agreement.

this is sad
I hope WD does not follow them, but they definitely will.
Its cartel politics while deciding such policies.
