Well I had to pay for it $9.95 which is what it would cost me to ship alone. For this they send me a new drive and a prepaid shipping label so I take the new drive out and put the broken one in and send it on its way. It's been my experience that wd drives have been the most reliable for me which is why I'm replacing drives with wd's. I have one more seagate 7200.12 drive, a 750gb in my system that hasn't given me any trouble but if it does another wd black will take its place.
Strangebrew I'm buying wd caviar blacks for storage and I use a 600gb velociraptor for programs that I don't keep on my ssd. Eventually all of my drives will be wd's. Hitachi deskstars have also been good to me, knock on wood, but they aren't quite as fast as the caviar blacks.
