On December 31 and January 2, respectively

Not only are HDDs following in the footsteps of economies worldwide, we now hear that WD and Seagate will cut their HDD warranties.

Seagate allegedly sent a letter to distributors, where it said that warranties will be cut on December 31, 2011. WD, on the other hand, is planning for a “policy change” on January 2, 2012.

Apparently, Seagate’s Nearline, Barracuda XT and Momentus line warranty coverages will drop from 5 to 3 years, whereas some desktop and notebook bare drivers will drop from 5 to 1 year. As for WD, its Caviar Blue, Caviar Green and Scorpio Blue drives’ warranties will go down from 3 to 2 years for drives shipped after the date.
