Other World Computing (OWC) offers a 3 year parts and labor limited warranty on all new OWC and Newer Technology external storage solutions (OWC is not responsible for drive data*). Most drives also have an additional 1-2 years warranty from the manufacturer that can be used should an issue arise after the 3 year OWC warranty has expired.
To get you back up and running quickly in the event of an issue, we also offer an advance ship option within the first 30 days from date of purchase.
RETURN ISSUANCE IS BASED UPON PHONE DIAGNOSIS BY AN OWC TECH SUPPORT SPECIALIST. OWC reserves the right to repair, replace or upgrade to equivalent or better components for the duration of the warranty.
This warranty is expressly subject to the website Terms & Conditions ("Terms") & Terms of Sale located at http://eshop.macsales.com/service/terms/sale, which are hereby incorporated herein and made a part hereof by this reference.
