Comments, Questions & Reviews:
UK WARRANTY!!!!! by Robster
I have purchased three of these drives and really like them.
However I have one drive which is now showing bad sector counts, so I went to WD warranty site to get a replacement.
Turns out my drive is in warranty but Out of Region!!!!!!
Checking back, two of my drives were purchased through Amazon and 1 through Aria.
The only one of the three which is in Region warranty is the one I purchased through Aria and was even the cheapest of the three.
Way to go Aria, great service and a lesson to all!
