Newegg has it 5-year, but Staples only 2-year limited warranty. And yes, I confirm this drive only has 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s.
Are you sure about the 2 year warranty? I know that Staples states it under specifications but under product details it says 5 year warranty and to my knowledge all Western Digital black drives comes with a 5 year warranty.
I've never seen a WD external drive with a 5 year warranty. I have 8 internal black drives with 5 years ea, but once a drive goes into a portable enclosure all bets are off...
It might be possible to buy an extension though.
Even a 2 year WD seems better to me than Seagat's policy which IMO is "we guarantee this drive will fail, corrupt/destroy your data, and we won't stand behind it".
Pick your poison i guess...
This is an internal drive. It should have a 5 year warranty like all Black drives as even the Staples Website says 5 years in the product info. The 2 year reference in the specs I believe is a mistake.
