How long does this limited hardware warranty last?
This limited hardware warranty lasts for the time period indicated on your packing slip, invoice or receipt except for the following Dell-branded hardware:
  • All variants of the Samsung® SM843T SSD series drives carry the length of the limited hardware warranty coverage for the Dell system with which they are shipped. Samsung® SM843T SSD series drives are not eligible for purchase of extended warranty coverage beyond a total of 3 years of coverage from the original shipment date. Samsung® SM843T SSD series drives use a NAND flash technology that has a maximum total bytes of data that may be written to the drives before the drives wear out and become unresponsive. The maximum total bytes of written data varies by capacity and workloads of the drives (see the device data sheets). The applicable limited hardware warranty covers failures due to defects in workmanship and materials, but does not cover issues related to the drive surpassing its maximum total bytes of written data. In order to ensure the full life expectancy of the drives, customers are advised to use them only in applications suggested on their respective data sheets.
  • All variants of flash devices, including solid state drives, included in Dell Compellent systems, carry the length of the limited hardware warranty coverage for the Dell Compellent system with which the flash device is shipped. However, because flash devices use a silicon technology that has a maximum number of bytes that can be written to the device (the "Rated Life"), the applicable limited hardware warranty covers failures due to defects in workmanship and/or materials, but does not cover problems related to the device reaching its maximum Rated Life. Should a device reach its maximum rated life, it will no longer be eligible for replacement under this warranty, regardless of the length of the warranty for the Dell Compellent system in which it was shipped.
  • All variants of ioDrive® NAND Flash devices carry the length of the limited hardware warranty coverage for the Dell system with which the ioDrive NAND Flash device is shipped. ioDrive NAND Flash devices are not eligible for purchase of extended warranty coverage beyond a total of 5 years of coverage from the original shipment date. Additionally, ioDrive NAND Flash devices use a silicon technology that has a maximum number of physical bytes that can be written to the device (the Rated Life). The applicable limited hardware warranty covers failures due to defects in workmanship and/or materials, but does not cover problems related to the device reaching its maximum Rated Life. ioDrive is a registered trademark of Fusion-io.
  • As part of standard portable configuration, batteries carry a base 1-year limited hardware warranty regardless of the length of the system warranty. In addition, for some products, a customer has the option of purchasing a battery that comes with a 3-year limited hardware warranty.
  • The warranty for a print head that is included as original equipment in the Dell mobile printer is for parts only and is effective for a period of 1 year after the date of purchase of the printer or 1000 prints of printer usage, whichever occurs first.
  • Your Series 5, 6 or 7 PERC controller battery may provide up to 72 hours of controller cache memory backup power when new. Under the 1-year limited hardware warranty, we warrant that the battery will provide at least 24 hours of backup coverage during the 1-year limited hardware warranty period.
  • Your Series 8 PERC controller battery comes with a 3-year limited hardware warranty, which cannot be extended beyond 3 years.
  • Projector lamps carry a 90-day limited hardware warranty.
  • Dell-certified and Dell-branded memory purchased separately from a Dell system (Dell-certified memory) carries a lifetime limited hardware warranty.
  • The limited hardware warranty for monitors purchased independent of a system lasts for the time period indicated on your packing slip, invoice, receipt or other sales documentation. Monitors purchased with a system are covered by the system limited hardware warranty.
  • The limited hardware warranty for a Dell external hard disk drive purchased simultaneously with a system lasts for the longer of (a) 2 years; or (b) the duration of the system's limited hardware warranty.
  • PDAs, earphones and remote in-line controls carry a 1-year limited hardware warranty.
  • Other add-on hardware carries the longer of either a 1-year limited hardware warranty for new parts and a 90-day limited hardware warranty for reconditioned parts or, for both new and reconditioned parts, the remainder of the warranty for the Dell product on which such parts are installed.
  • SATA hard drives in PowerEdge, PowerEdge SC and PowerVaultTM  systems carry the lesser of either a 1-year limited hardware warranty or the length of the limited hardware warranty for the Dell system with which the SATA hard drive is shipped. Service offerings, such as Dell ProSupportTM , may be available to extend the SATA hard drive warranty period on these systems for an additional fee.
  • Select PowerConnectTM  products carry a lifetime limited hardware warranty with Basic Hardware Service (repair or replacement) for as long as you own the product.
