OCZ Provides Warranty Information Following Acquisition by ToshibaCategory: Manufacturers
Posted: February 2, 2014 01:14AM
Toshiba's acquisition of OCZ Technology went through recently, which leaves the latter operating pretty much as it is, just with the new OCZ Storage Solutions name. The acquisition is good news as it helps keep one of the more popular SSD companies around, but you may be wondering what exactly that means for all its existing products, especially the warranties. Luckily information has come out on that matter, and the news is mostly good. All of OCZ's latest SSDs will continue with normal warranty support, so that means all the Vertex products (including the new 460 series), RevoDrives (but not the Hybrid), and Vector series are covered. However, the Agility series will only be covered until January 22, 2015. That means some warranties for the Agility 3 and 4 (like what I'm using) are going to be shortened a little.
Now to the bad news: all SSD series not listed above are not covered by a warranty. Also any non-SSD product made by OCZ won't be covered anymore, so that means power supplies, RAM, flash drives, and any peripherals. Speaking of power supplies, OCZ has found a buyer and will be announcing details in the next couple of weeks.
So there you have it. If you have an OCZ product still covered by warranty, it's business as usual. If you have one that will no longer carry a warranty and something happens to the product within reason, OCZ will try to replace it with the same model or a similar one (or even reimburse you the current market value).
