I have a hard time buying or even considering Fujitsu products for purchase.

Years ago I went to a computer swap meet and bought three brand new Fujitsu hard drives at a good price. Over the course of three months, 2 of them failed within two days. I contacted Fujitsu online and they refused to warranty them because they didn't like that I didn't buy them from somebody "official". Within a month the last one died too. I have never spent any money on anything with that name on it since. "Once Bitten, Twice Shy"

Note that I have been buying at huge discounts at computer swap meets for many years and have never had any problems with any other manufacturer's warranty service.
