Depending on how long you could probably return it, if you got the 3TB from Amazon you would definitely be able to return it no worries.

Probably not worth the hassle. I have used it but still got the box and it was before Christmas. I actually got it from the deal that I posted

I can't find anything either on amazon. But it is also available at the same price from ebuyer and ccl (in description) and they both have a 3 year warranty. Hope this helps

Does anyone do HASSLE FREE returns
Owned by Seagate so should be pretty reliable...
I have one of these, also the 4TB. Generally a good drive (40MB/s with no caching, 100MB/s with caching) and indeed 3 years warranty (which can be confirmed on Seagate site if you type in the product code and serial). Do keep in mind that the return procedure with Seagate is more of a hassle than it is with WD. In both cases what you will get back after a return is a refurbished drive covered by the original warranty. Nice about this drive, and somewhat rare, is that the drive inside is a SATA model (unlike WD portable drives, which have a USB soldered on the print board). If you do remove the drive, the warranty is spoiled though as the internal drive does not come up as having any warranty and you will destroy the enclosure when removing the drive. What's hidden inside is a thick ST4000LM024 (so don't think you can shove it in your laptop).

I find all brands to be the same whether expensive or cheap. Not all products get tested and it's just pot luck as to which one is gonna fail. I could buy a cheap tv and then an expensive one, and have the expensive one fail after a week... wouldn't put me off that brand though

In my experience 28years. I've probably had about 40+ hard drives. A mixture of wd, seagate, Samsung, Maxtor and others. I've only ever had problems with 1 Maxtor fail after about 10 years heavy use. 1 Samsung spin point 2tb failed. But had 4 seagate drives die. 3 in a storage server after about 2 to 3 years each and one which died after a month. I have had about 8 wd drives with no failures at all. A mixture of very old and newer technologies. I will only ever buy wd drives these days.
