A hard disk drive (HDD) is a valuable investment, whether you're an individual consumer or a business owner. Getting one from a questionable source is risky. A lower price offer is undeniably attractive, but how about the after-sales support and warranty policy? Acquiring support from third-party sources might be costlier in the long run. The worse, you might end up with a paperweight because of a broken hard drive.
Helping its customers make sure that they get their Seagate HDDs from reputable sources, Seagate Philippines has launched the Be WISER! campaign. The acronym WISER stands for Warranty, In-depth service, Support, End user promo, and Rescue. The Be WISER! campaign educates customers on the value of buying brand new Seagate HDDs from authorized stores, particularly Seagate's internal HDDs.
The question is: how to know a store is Seagate-authorized? First, look for the Be WISER! poster or sticker located on the store's door. Other in-store signages that you might find inside a Seagate-authorized store are buntings and wobblers bearing the Be WISER! message. The last but not the least, do inspect the HDD itself. It must bear a Be WISER! hologram sticker.
So before getting a brand new Seagate HDD, make sure that the store is Seagate-authorized and Be WISER! Doing so lets you get a HDD for the right price coupled with the right after-sales service and warranty support that you truly deserve.
