A friend told me that none of the suppliers will be swapping out hard drives
anymore. I don't know if this is true. According to him the drives have to go
back to the manufacturers first from now on.

If that's true, it sux.

Yeah, but I heard that repairs take long (2 weeks). Not sure about swop-outs
though. I think there won't be a problem with warranties

Thanks

I actualy want to know, what happens if I need to take broken stuff
back. Say the Hard drive fails after 6 months, will they honour the
manufacturers 1 year warranty, stuff like that.
