Right. Only the MaxLine II. The rest, not including SCSI, are 1 year.

It looks to me that Maxtor is exiting the consumer market. They sell
their crippled DiamondMax 9/16's, and the existing product lines, to the
OEM's who don't care about warranty as much.

They continue to sell to NAS/SAN manufacturers(even though they got out of
the business themselves), and to people building large servers, with their
MaxLine II.
