Default Seagate Warranty?

Is there anywhere I can get pre-purchase information about the warranty on Seagate drives? Seagate retail kits used to carry a 5-year warranty and that's what is shown at Amazon for this drive. Newegg though, shows only a 2-year warranty for the same model number. How do I know which is correct?

1 year warranty is what seagate does now, except for the constellation class drives.

I'm in the process of replacing a 5-year, 2-month old drive. AMEX extended warranty refunded the purchase price, which means I have enough to buy two drives -- one as a desktop replacement and one for my server. I ordered a WD Red drive for the server and am thinking of getting a Barracuda XT or WD Green for the desktop.
