Hoping to get a confirmation from those of you that bought this specific drive at Costco that the drive can be taken out of the enclosure and used internally. Is the warranty voided also by doing this? Hoping to buy 3 of these to add to my media server.
You bought it at COSTCO! You are really worried about manufacturers warranty?
Use one of these to open it up http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/...28G9WPPLAW
Go to Seagate's web site and enter the serial number on the drive. If the warranty on the drive is longer then the warranty on the external you are good to go. If not just hang onto the case and pop it back in for RETURN TO COSTCO.
fixed the above for you...
