    HP Warranty Question

    A quick question for all you HP users. I have just had to place a warranty call for a faulty HDD on a HP server and the support agent stated that the warranty was due to expire in Jan 10 which is strange as the server was purchased dec 08 with a 3y warranty. Now all the agent suggested was I purchase and extension, but checking the warranty online HPs site states

    Wty: HP HW Maintenance Onsite Support 
     Status  Active 
     Start Date  29 Dec 2008  
     End Date  27 Jan 2010
    and then above it has the following:

    Warranty Type Contract 
    HP Hardware Maintenance Onsite Support 
     Start Date  22 Dec 2009  
     End Date  31 Dec 2011
    So am I right in thinking that I am covered with an onsite hardware warranty until 31 Dec 2011 and that the support agent was taling rubbish?

    Maybe he saw the same as you and read the top field ignoring the 2nd field.

    Looks normal to me, top field suggests a standard 1yr warranty (not sure why you have 13months, misread that...)

    Then the 2nd is the 2 year extension you have purchased to top it up.

    Yep certainly looks like the agent missed that you already had the 3yr cover.
