Hey all.

I sent my WD74gb Raptor to Western Digital for it died. This HDD was made in 2003 and I thought it would be outside its warranty for sure, so i went to there website and typed in the serial of the HDD, to my amazement it was still inside it warranty.

I thought to myself even though its still in warranty I cant replace it for I did not have a recite because I bought it from eBay. The recite was not needed.

I read some forum and most PPL appear to get repaired second hand HDD's back so I was not too happy about that, today I got the HDD back from WD (8 Days after I sent it) and I was replace with a new HDD, made on the 7th of MAY 2007. :):):)

Because I didn’t expect to receive another Raptor i bought a new one and now i have 2, cant wait to go home and RAID-0 them apparently I will expect 20% performance increase. :):):)

I thought I would shear this experience with everyone for im very impressed with Western Digital! Really who gives you 5 years warranty?

Good for you. Keep in mind every company makes crap sometimes. It's not worth it to the company any more to mess with customer's complaints. They will throw a new drive at you and hope it will stick. Remember most HDDS last 5 years on average.
