Well, then be extremely surprised as you are incorrect. Costco will take the return under its Customer Satisfaction Policy at ANY time as long as you have your receipt.

Three weeks ago, I replaced a 3 TB HD that had failed after 18 months. I had my receipt, got a new HD and even made almost $30 as the price had changed. I will be replacing another later today that failed after 25 months, but I have my receipt and expect no problems.

Costco is da bomb when it comes to electronics!
Good to know. Costco is definitely the exception to the rule in this case. I've never heard of any other retailer taking returns after 30 days, let alone 90 or more.

Isn't it true that CostCo already has changed its policy return on electronics? No return after 90 days.
Maybe people was be able to return because the items was bought before the new policy take into effect.

That's only for TVs, computers, cameras, and other big electronic items.

No, not electronics in general. It is specific electronics that fall into the 90 day return policy "televisions, projectors, computers, cameras, camcorders, touch screen tablets, MP3 players and cellular phones".

If they haven't killed this program yet they will soon. All of these "satisfaction guaranteed" return policies are going away. Sam's Club used to have it for everything too. Cabela's also had it, but when you see some of the stuff people return it's easy to see why they get rid of it.

Not anymore. REI changed their return policy:

We stand behind everything we sell. If you are not satisfied with your REI purchase, you can return it for a replacement or refund. Items must be returned within a year of purchase, except items purchased from REI-OUTLET which must be returned within 30 days of purchase.

I remember GoFlex 3TB was available for $118 on Amazon Gold Box deal last year

Just wanted to know which one is better -- thanks in advance

Based on the video, you can take it out, but follow the instructions.

Damn..sweet 3tb drive for 100 bucks internal HD since you can take it out and put in a new drive if your drive fails! Or just take it out and use it for NAS or something else with it!

This one is $18.01 cheaper and is available right now. The Gold Box deal from last year is not an option.

The internal drive is probably the same. Not sure if the deal you mentioned was USB 3.0 or not, but that might be another difference. This drive includes different crapware for backups as well.
