"Offers a feature set similar to the 850 Evo"
So why is a new product necessary? Just sell 850 Evos.

I wonder how that will work, since as a whole, the HD manufacturer's ignore their warranty for OEM devices. I can get a Toshiba laptop in with a WD black, and if the drive fails after the 1-year Toshiba Warranty, I'm screwed, or my client is, anyway. What's the point of putting a hard drive in a device with a longer warranty than the device itself?

Well, lots of European countries have 5 years++ return right (if the device breaks within the return right period the shop where it was bought has to fix the device). They just send the device to the manufacturer as warranty anyway, but its easier to force a local shop/suppler to honor this than a large multi national company.

Also, for medium and large businesses that does their own modification to laptops it could be handy to have 5 years of warranty

that would be a shame, I wouldn't mind paying extra 20-30$ for a 5-7 year warranty just for a little peace of mind.

Why? It will be outdated and replaced well before that.

Not many people replace their storage drives every 3-4 years. I know a lot of people who have been using the single storage drive for 5-8 years now and are reluctant to replace those. In corporate world that extra warranty is a necessity but for retail it can provide peace of mind for such users who use their drives for a super long time.

Really? I have replaced all of my 5 year old solid states. The only people who typically keep them past that are those with older mechanical drives being used for storage. As solid states increase in speed and capacity they are replaced by the "enthusiast" market. Solid states and hard drives as far as storage drives go aren't typically replaced on the same time frame.

Like you said enthusiasts will replace drives on a 3-5 year cycle but for most consumers things aren't that simple.

Most consumers don't have a solid state ;) and most consumers are replacing their entire computer every 3-5 years.

In India average consumers will use the electronics until they die, they dont have a fixed upgrade cycle unlike PC enthusiasts who will upgrade once atleast every 3 years.
