YES! Let's all get real MAD, ANGRY and BUTTHURT on some computer forum because then WD will definitely change it back to 3 years!

And it could possibly make a change, it did in the past. The alternative is worse.

A bit Offtopic, but does anyone send their WD HDD back due to "failures" in the last year of warranty?

Figured you can get a new HDD that way.

I think Seagate was losing their collective butt on RMAs. Apparently WD was too, to some extent.

Toshiba only makes 2.5" or smaller HDDs.

I honestly have never had a hdd failure since a little 60GB Maxtor ATA drive back in 02' other then that. I still use a Seagate 120GB SATA I drive my 500GB Caviar Black is almost three, and I still have many functioning but shelved Seagate IDE drives. I don't see what all the fuss is about.

Once you go black you never go back...I forsee less problems with my HDD's, since my SSD is my primary.
