And why would they be? They are not designed for that type of use.
A warranty is not a free pass to abuse something, it's to protect against defects.
no matter what it is, using a product for other than its intended purpose and breaking it ,is not a defect and should not be covered under warranty
Who is to say what the intended purpose is? How would you enforce it? Am I suddenly going to have a limit to the number of hours I can run my video card before the warranty runs out (3 years or 1000 hours whichever comes first)? Are we going to start harping on Backblaze for using non-enterprise hard drives in an enterprise environment and say that their data is useless because they weren't used for their intended purpose?
