Great until you realise that dabs or the like are still probably cheaper - as it is discounted off the retail price, not the prices of online stores. Oh, and the warrenty on the drive whos serial code you used is now null & void. Nice.....

....also, on a completely unrelated note, I don't own any western digital drives so cant take part in the offer. damn.

EDIT - sorry if the above sounds moany, it just seems that manufacturers are offering these great sounding schemes, that on the face of it are great news for us, when if you then look into them the offers crumble into something thats worth very little.

That would rock. I have a whole bunch of old WD hard drives laying around the house that I wouldn't even think of running anymore.

You don't have to get rid of the drive, it just voids the warranty on that drive. So as it looks I think they still have to be within their warranty period.
