I like the "news" flavor. Don't know if anyone buys it though- they could
have kissed their own ass a *little* less.. it gets worse in the actual
article. A good warranty nevertheless, though they don't say explicitly what
it covers.

Definitely an interesting development.
I too suspect it is a marketing ploy.

Will any of the other mfg's follow and offer a 5 year warranty?

HUH : "on every Seagate internal PC, notebook and enterprise hard drive
shipped through its distribution and retail channels throughout the world."

Do you work for Hitachi?

Obviously drive train but no body work as certainly it wouldn't cover drive
failure.

what difference does it make? if the hd breaks down you send it back for a
new one. Frankly any hd manufacturer that offers a 1 year warranty should be
ashamed of themselves.

I know what brand of hd I'm getting next
