Warranties on media are not worth much in practice.  I had a large number of
Maxell magneto-optical disks go bad.  Interestingly, these disks were
purchased over a period of several years from different batches and
different resellers.  They were all warrantied "for life".  But in order to
claim my refund, I would have to ship the disks to Maxell.  There was
confidential and financial data on those disks.  Because of that, and the
cost of shipping, I just punted them into the trash and vowed never to buy
Maxell again.
