D-Link offers lifetime warranties on switches

warranties

D-Link, a vendor of network and storage hardware for small and midsized businesses, announced last week that it will begin offering full lifetime warranties on its xStack switch line. This warranty applies to any switches bought on or after March 31, 2009. D-Link competitor Netgear also provides lifetime warranties on its switches.

Looking up the vendor food chain, HP ProCurve has been offering lifetime warranties on its hardware for a long time, and it extended that lifetime warranty to wireless LAN vendor Colubris when it bought that company last year.

In this economic climate, I wouldn’t be surprised if other networking vendors introduce this kind of investment protection as they try to hold onto market share or attempt to steal market share from leading vendors like Cisco.
