Warranty

The best warranty is one you never have to use - but should the need occur - we're proud to provide a superior level of support and service coverage to our customers.

90 Day OWC Replacement Warranty
OWC is proud to offer an extended replacement window of 90 days on new internal hard disk drives. Once a return authorization number has been issued and we receive the problematic drive back, you will get a brand new replacement drive, rather than a factory refurbished drive.

5 Year Seagate Warranty
After 90 days, the drive is fully backed by the manufacturer to be free from defects in material and workmanship for the remainder of the five year warranty period.

Rating: 5/5 Great HDD for the price and ease of upgrade! March 7, 2017 I chose this Seagate drive for several reason: I wanted a SSD upgrade for my mid 2010 iMac, 2) for cost I needed to do it myself 3) wanted to be sure it worked and had a good long life. It has proven points one and two already with the noted exception that it is a hybrid SSD HDD which is completely satisfactory for me, the improvement is quite profound to me. It was not difficult to install using the OWC HD install kit with the necessary temp probe adaptor. I did have the cooling fan run excessively initially which the tech support at OWC was very helpful and patient and helped me troubleshoot my error and once I went back in and repositioned the cable and reattached the sensor cable all has been perfect since. Point three has yet to be seen but I am confident, and this drive has a 5 year warranty, which for any HDD for my use is outstanding.

Rating: 5/5 Fast Replacement Drive November 25, 2016 I finally got around to installing this drive as my boot drive. I had waited until Mac OS Sierra went to 10.12.1. It is noticeably faster (about 1/2 the start-up time) than the previous 1TB drive with Yosemite. My Apple Mail app also runs a lot faster. Since I had the new 2TB drive, I was able to do a clean install of the new OS & use Time Machine to migrate all of my settings & files. This is my first experience with a hybrid drive and I am very pleased with it.

Rating: 5/5 Brought life back to my 2010 iMac October 10, 2016 I bought this drive because my original drive was dying - taking forever to load simple programs, even web pages. This drive has worked like a charm! it's twice the storage of my old drive, but more importantly, this drive is much faster overall. It boots much faster and the programs I use frequently open super quick. Installation was a breeze, took less than an hour thanks to the installation kit and the additional thermal sensor I bought with it. Great product so far, very happy with this upgrade!
