Hexus heard Corsair will now offer a three year warranty on its solid state disks. It's unknown whether this extension will be made available to existing customers.
Corsair has today responded to its customer's requests by confirming that its standard SSD warranty will be extended from two to three years for newly purchased drives.
The change is expected to be made official on the Corsair website later today, and the three-year warranty puts Corsair in line with what's quickly becoming an industry standard for solid-state media.

Re: Corsair extends SSD warranty from two to three years by Anonymous on Saturday, May 22 2010 @ 03:03:18 CEST
3 is minimum. Those offering only 1 year are not even worth looking at. 3 at least says they believe their product is durable. 5 years would say they actually believe those huge MBTF figures they are touting in their specs.
Fact is (and the accountants know this) if you truly believe your SSD product has a longer MBTF than enterprise drives, then you'd better have a warranty that matches the enterprise drives (5 years). Otherwise your warranty and your supposed lifetime seem to be in conflict. And with what these drives cost, you should only buy from a maker that backs up their claims with a strong guarantee/warranty.
