You need a good warranty from them...my Ministack broke 3 times. Always the same problem, the power plug connector broke on the inside of the unit. OWC always fixed it, but I got tired of messing with it so I bought a Western Digital.

They might have been taking a hit with sales. Seagate and WD have moved up their warranties to like 3-5 years on external drives. That gives people a certain level of comfort.

I know it's good for us, the end user; but aren't they loosing money since many hard drives may crash within 3-5 years?

Maybe if something breaks on the actual enclosure or with its power supply, but I would assume that the hard drive inside still has some sort of warranty from the manufacturer.

No doubt. Most OEM warranties for drives run about 3 years. At least with most of the 3.5" drives I've seen around. Like from Seagate, Hitachi and WD.
