So if you all remember I won the unmentionable place Massive uprising giveaway in December 2016. Fast forward to this month when the SSHD drive started to fail.
So I contacted Seagate about the warranty and this was their reply:
Verifying the serial number Z4Z71ZYH it seems to be a promotional drive and the warranty end date was on 25/11/2016.
WTF??? They were advertising this drive has a 5-year warranty, and since it was a giveaway it was simply dismissed???
Not only this throws a seriously bad image on them, since the drive failed within 3 years, but also no warranty on giveaways???
All other components had a warranty which was respected!
Sigh, so now I’m out of a 2TB drive and seriously not in the mood for shopping around… I need a vacation deffo.
