Totally chuffed at the moment, Checked randomly to see if my dead Samsung F1 was still under warranty and low and behold it was! Ive used it as a paperweight, tea coster and heatshield/heatsink for the last 2years - anything but plugging it in after it developed problems and im just totally amazed its still under warranty. So its going for RMA tomorrow. hopefully samsung send me a F3 back *fingers crossed* I know they probably wont though. :EDIT: they could also 'upgrade' me to a 500Gb F3 instead. not 100% happy about losing 250Gb, but id still take it.
