A few months back I posted here that I had found both 2-yr- and
1-yr-warranty STBD2000101 drives on the shelf at Best Buy, while at that
time people were complaining that the drives they had received from
NewEgg were 1-yr-warranty models. I had assumed that the 2-yr-warranty
drives were old stock, gradually being replaced by the ones with the
shorter warranty. Today, however, I was surprised to see that all the
STBD2000101 drives on the shelf at Best Buy have a 2-yr-warranty. I
didn't check the warranty of the Seagate "green" drives or those with
larger or smaller capacities.

Seagate has always been rather bizarre like that.

They appear to keep their acquisitions going independently longer than most
do.

Seagate dropped their warranties to 1-year shortly after the floods,
since then they've been experimenting with 2-year warranties, but
there's no rhyme or reason.
