For their standard 2 MB cache drives, yes. It's still 3 years for the Special Editions.

This is the same for maxtor as well. Since IBM is dropping out of the small market business, you'll see a lot of policy change.

IBM drives have faster access times, but that also means more noise, more wear and tear, which = shorter life.
