■ Let's Talk About Hard Drives ————————

Did you know?

If you purchased hard drives from us, we will take care of the return merchandise authorization (RMA) process.

Life gets busy. Tedious tasks like contacting your drive supplier, filling out a return form, shipping out the drive, and waiting for them to receive your damaged drive before shipping the new one out — are very time-consuming and frustrating. 

So, we simplified the process for our customers and offer up to 5 years of advanced replacement warranty on all Seagate hard drives we sell. 

Have a drive failure? No problem, notify us of a bad disk with its serial number, and we will have one sent to you immediately. We will also assist you with returning your defective drive to your supplier.

Have a drive you need replaced? Let us know!  Or, if you have questions about our advanced replacement warranty, reach out to us!

■ HELPFUL VIDEOS ————————————

Transporting Hard Drives

Watching someone move a storage server with hard drives still installed is terrifying. With so many things that can go wrong, not to mention how heavy servers can get — we strongly suggest avoiding doing this.

Still not convinced? Watch this video as Archie gives you all the reasons why!

While consumer drives can be a quieter, lower-cost option, they are better suited for desktops and laptops and some lower-cost workstations.

But, when you need reliability and high performance at a larger capacity - enterprise drives are the key! 

Check out this article to find out why we suggest enterprise hard drives and their benefits.
