I keep hearing horror stories of the OEM version not being covered by WD …I keep hearing horror stories of the OEM version not being covered by WD warranty. Just checked on their website and says the following: OEM drives may not contain a warranty from Western Digital. When Western Digital sells hard drives to OEM computer manufacturers such as Dell, Compaq, Apple, etc, we sell these drives without warranty. The OEM computer manufacturer would include the hard drive under the warranty of the computer system that the hard drive was installed into. For more information about hard drive warranties, please see our Warranty Policy.


Never had any issues with any variation of the WD warranty, unless it is provided in a PC, the warranty is the standard 1 year from the authorised reseller then the 2nd & 3rd year is with WD direct.

One you ((anyone)) register the batch serial, WD's logs the actual use start date as the date of the 3 years.

Just pop the serial in here and it will tell you after about 24-48 hours how long you have / or how long the drive has left under the warranty

These have been out of stock for a while! Great price...
Great price for this drive. I'm guessing they are price matching CCL

Definitely go with a Synology. I am using these in a DS2413+

So was I initially. Was looking at the ds218play to be able to play 4K but watching this vid made me think the qnap ts453a-4G is better. Way more ram and an hdmi port for direct connection.
Prefer the Synology software, so versatile. Saying that, my brother loves Qnap's no nonsense drive expandability. At two drives I'd go Synology, more drives? Qnap maybe.
