Use one of these to open it up

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 warranty service.
The warranty on one I got was until Nov 2015, so it is longer than 2 years. Smilie

can anyone here confirm which drive is inside?

I just got one and I'm testing it out now. Seems to run fairly cool inside its case. I'm reading 43° C after my first transfer. 183GB averaging 122MB/s with all 100MB+ files.
Barracuda XT ST4000DX000, it's 7200 RPM

FYI These are 5900 rpm drives!
Mine was PN: 1CL160-570, that is a 7200 RPM drive. Doubt Seagate is using 2 different drives in the same enclosure....
