I just had a 1TB Time Capsule die on me less than 2 weeks ago. I took it to the Apple Store and they told me it was 300 some odd days out of warranty. I mentioned I had a few Apple machines at home and had Apple Care on them and asked if it was covered under that warranty. She told me it would only be covered if it were bought on the same receipt as one of the machines. It wasn't but she also mentioned that she remembered me from the other day (I took my laptop in but that's another story). Anyways she told me to hang on a second and went into the back, when she came out she told me they would replace the machine with a brand new one but I would just lose the data from the hard drive in the dead Time Capsule. The data wasn't important and I gladly accepted and thanked her numerous times for being so kind. She could have simply told me I was SOL. I just thought I would share my story with you guys since I was pretty amazed that I got a replacement. This is one of the many reasons I will continue to buy Apple products. Maybe I'll get Apple Care with the next ones just incase my luck runs out.
