Western Digitalis

Saved some $ unexpectedly. Went online to Western Digital's web site hoping to find out what it would cost to have my dead 400GB SATA drive refurbished, and discovered it is still under warranty. They issued an RMA, and a UPS shipping label for 10% off the regular price.

Turns out that while the retail box drives are only warranted for a year, the OEMs carry a 3-year warranty. I'm glad I build my PCs from parts.

I had bought a spare online, but UPS had thrown it over the patio wall so I did not want to keep it. So at lunchtime I went to UPS, refused delivery on the purchased drive and shipped the failed drive to WD. That'll net me about $125, and I'll wind up with a good spare.
