Wrong. Click here
for links to the press releases from Western Digithell. Both them and Seagate have joined the 1 year bandwagon.
I wonder if drives bought before Oct. 1 will still have 3 year warranties. Guess I'd better hand on to my receipt if I have a problem.
But for reliability, so far I can't recommend Seagate highly enough. I've put my 80 gig drive through hell and back since I bought it and it's still going strong.
I will never, ever put another WD hard drive in my computer again. Among my friends and I we've had at least 4 WD drive failures within a 6 month period (myself having 3 of them).
