Re: Short warranty for Archive drive?
.... you've just agreed with the OP. Anyway 5yr used to be the standard for warranty I'd look for, for at least a desktop system that's getting harder and harder.
I'm starting to wonder if we will see warranties which depend on time drive has been running rather than clock time. Warranty for 500,000 hrs run time would be far more trusted than it can sit in a box for 3 years and be fine!.
