Protection beyond an external hard drive warranty
Individual external hard drive warranties can be expensive, but for just $24.99 per month, an Asurion Home+® protection plan provides coverage, tech support, and more for all of your devices.
Asurion Home+ offers external hard drive protection and benefits an external hard drive warranty can’t provide
External hard drive warranties can provide peace of mind—but they can also expire. Asurion Home+ protection doesn’t. It covers your eligible home tech (external hard drives included) from mechanical and electrical breakdowns, normal wear and tear, and more. But it also offers benefits an external hard drive warranty can’t provide, like expert support, data security, and photo storage. Consider Asurion Home+ for these external hard drive brands:
Why you should rule out external hard drive warranties
An external hard drive warranty may not offer all the protection you need. But Asurion Home+ can cover all your external hard drive devices for less than $1 per day. It’s just one of the reasons to consider a protection plan over a warranty:
The failure rate of hard drives increases dramatically after 3 years. And they can fail sooner if exposed to humidity, changing temperatures, or external shocks.
Assuming no physical damage occurs, the average lifespan for an external hard drive is around 3–5 years.
External hard drives are prone to data corruption, which can be caused by bad sectors that don't maintain data integrity. Bad sectors will increase rapidly on a failing hard drive.
Get more coverage than a typical external hard drive warranty
Unlike a single external hard drive warranty, an Asurion Home+ plan will provide coverage for nearly all the technology in your home—even future purchases. It also offers live expert support, robust digital security, and simple claims for your home tech. Check out our Frequently Asked Questions to learn more about Asurion Home+.

Does Asurion Home+ cost more than an external hard drive warranty?
The gadgets we love aren’t cheap, especially external hard drives. And if you include the cost of a single external hard drive warranty and the warranties for other tech, like laptops, tablets, and game consoles, it can add up fast. It’s more convenient—and cost effective—to cover all of them under one protection plan. That’s why Asurion Home+ offers an affordable solution. For just $24.99 per month, plus applicable taxes, we cover nearly all the tech in your home under one simple plan. It’s a small price to help keep your devices protected.
Is an external hard drive warranty worth it?
The average U.S. household spends over $11,000 on technology.* Instead of buying an external hard drive warranty that will only cover your external hard drive, consider Asurion Home+, which will cover every device in your home—even the devices you haven’t bought yet. Your external hard drive will be covered against failures due to mechanical and electrical breakdown, normal wear and tear, dust, heat, and humidity, and power-surge failures. An external hard drive warranty can’t offer that level of protection. Even if you have a homeowner’s or renter’s policy, it may still only provide basic protection against fire and other catastrophes.
An Asurion Home+ external hard drive protection plan can provide coverage for the most common breakdowns on all your favorite home tech for less than $1 per day. It’s the last warranty you’ll ever need.
