Lol, of course they wont replace it. Its out of warranty. What company does replace all fo there products when users are out of warranty? (so I can keep buying that stuff instead)
You feel you had a bad experience with one product. It happens. C’est la vie my friend.
In regards to it being sad that we cannot rely on the product more then a year, thats what a warranty is for. If they wanted us to rely on it for more then a year, then it would be a X year warranty instead of 1. We know what we are getting into as consumers as soon as we buy the product.
If you visit any companies forum (like this one) you will find people who say they are never going to buy another companies product again and blah blah. It almost seems like it weighs itself out in the long run, its not like SanDisk is dying for money or in fear of going bankrupt.
