Amazon ships this item directly to India and I had checked with Seagate US support and they confirmed the warranty can be claimed from India if at all there is any problem.

Thank you for contacting Seagate Technical Support.

Yes it can be replaced in India, but you need to contact us again by call or by email in future to get the approval and you need to fill up some information and attach the email with your proof of purchase.

With the approval you can have this hard drive replaced without any issue.

Should you need any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you.

Looks like this can be opened with no visible damage and used as an internal drive and reassembled in case you need get it replaced.

I'll do ya one better. I just made a video for ya. I've now opened 17 of these little buggers. It takes less than five minutes, and only requires a flathead and a phillips screwdriver. The case can be reassembled with no visible damage to the exterior, but the interior clips ARE damaged by the disassembly. Here's the best way I've found to do it:

[DOUBLEPOST=1364314840][/DOUBLEPOST]Looks like its OOS now! :( I was in the last step, pressed the order button and it said OOS! :'(

That's great. I finally placed the order few minutes back.

Yes, ask Amazon asap, I read many posts by users who were able to get the refund.[DOUBLEPOST=1364321497][/DOUBLEPOST]Here is a comparison of the DX (7200 RPM) and DM (5900 RPM) variants of this drive -- http://lime-technology.com/forum/index.php?topic=26140.0

@GJ1001, @varkey:
What is the process? Does one have to create an account and then go ahead with placing the order using a credit card?? No issues with customs duty??

No process click buy on amazon.. Input address, customs duty and shipping will be calculated and amazon will take the deposit, I received it in 5 days even though I am currently in a small town called manipal.

Metro people should get it in 3-4 days max.

Wonder if I should get this. I also want GoFlex home to run my torrents.

What are the warranty details?
Will amazon help out in case things go wrong?

@prateekS: should one select amazon.com or any other seller on amazon, in this case - like PCNation - was ~20$ < amazon price. Does it make a difference in service levels?

The deal I posted is long gone, and the base price in USD at the time was $129.99.[DOUBLEPOST=1364532852][/DOUBLEPOST]

I don't think non-amazon sellers even ship internationally, and even if they do their shipping prices will be really high.

This deal was when Amazon's price was $129.99

Things are clear after seeing your "base price".

Noted your point on non-Amazon sellers. Will be on the lookout for the next deal! Thanks!
