Yes, but those who don't believe in Darwin's Theory of Evolution will still want a monkey.

Like the initiative, but in the computer store I work I see too much LaCie stuff coming back because it's broken. Due to dutch warranty laws, we have decided to scrap the entire line of LaCie products that tend to break.

Generally only problematic with their network drives though, but sometimes the USB drives come back too, but no more than any other tbh.

That's a pretty damned good price. Also, "Rikiki" Is the Asian equivalent of our "Ohahah". Monkey speak has it's own languages too.

Humans thinkkudos for dutch laws
Any electronic device that is not expendable, shall be covered for a minimum of 2 years warranty by the retailer, regardless of the manufacturer warranty.

This basically means if you buy something with 1 year warranty, and it breaks in the second year, for the consumer the effect is just 2 years warranty, but the retailer has to pay for the repair costs in the 2nd year.

It's a good system, but it's driving prices up a little bit.

Fortunately not very many people know this, and we only need to tell them if they ask so it doesn't bother that much.

Happens a lot that people come to us with laptops that break in the 2nd year, and ask us to repair them, even though they did not buy them at our store. In that case I love telling them to go to the retailer they bought the laptop at and use the 2 year argument. They then cannot refuse. Makes customers smile when they hear this.

sorry that was quite irrelevant to the article.

Anyways my experience with LaCie warranty is not bad, half the time here in the Netherlands they repair their drives free of cost regardless of them being outside the warranty period...

It's obvious why they don't come with a primate.

They're trying to get the monkey off of your backup.
