Holy Crap! One friggin' year on retail ATA drives starting October 1, 2002 :Q
This is only for their low end drives, their high end drives retain a 3 year warranty.

WD is following suit, as both companies are trying to separate their model lines.

I talked to a Maxtor CSR when I first heard about this and he told me that this would just apply to their OEM drives. The retail kits still retain the 3 year warranty.
