Are you buying OEM drives ? I have had no issues with either Seagate or HGST in terms of warranty work, but I _never_ but an OEM drive, I know those include no warranty.

I have yet to need to warranty a WD drive, so don't know that they're like.

I can't count you the number of times a drive manufacturer has pulled a fast one on a warranty replacement. WD is especially bad about this, they send back a cheaper drive than the original, a bottom-bin refurbished drive with twice the runtime/wear as the original that dies after a month (which mysteriously doesn't qualify for a warranty itself), or randomly insists we have to do a pay-and-reimburse replacement method then loses the records and never reimburses us.

Long term it's cheaper to just buy a new drive outright than to waste employee time arguing over the phone for days. I buy exclusively based on ratings and reliability reports now.
