I've recently sent HDD's back to IBM and Seagate, and a mate has sent one back to WD. My drives took around 2-3 weeks to be returned.

Both of mine had to be sent to holland, cost about 8 in postage with royal mail. WD ones have to go to germany, so expect around the same amount.

i've sent a couple back to WD a few years ago.

i had to call abroad (think it was belgium).

the calls cost about a fiver & postage likewise.

took about 3 weeks to get a replacement & that was faulty too, so had to go throught the same crap to get a replacement for that one aswell.

However, the original drive was 2 years old, so they sent me a slightly larger one :-)

Start your hail Mary's ...

Actually mine clicked alarmingly a couple of times last year, I got in a flap and backed everything up etc etc and it hasn't made a peep since (and yes it is still working .... !) I suppose its not always fatal

well...time for me to start saving up for a new one -_-
I just traded my cousin my 40gb maxtor (very loud) with this 80gb (very silent) both 7200rpm
But i prefer the 80gb since it's very very quiet
I can hear a few sounds maybe once every day or every other day.
