[toggle_item title ="View Press Release"]WD®, a Western Digital® company and world leader in storage and connected-life products, today announced that Opia Ltd, a sales promotion company, will be offering two exciting end customer offers for WD’s range of WD SentinelTM DX4000 small business storage servers.

Designed for small-to-medium-sized business (SMB), WD Sentinel DX4000 is easy to install and provides secure centralised storage, complete data protection and remote file access for employees and trusted vendors, while in the office or remotely working from anywhere in the world.

From 1st May until 31st July 2013 end customers who properly register for the promotion within 14 days of purchase can buy and try a WD Sentinel DX4000 for up to 60 days. If not 100% satisfied prior to the 60 day trial ending, the customer can submit a claim to return the WD Sentinel for a refund.

An additional incentive for those customers who properly register for the promotion and are satisfied with the WD Sentinel solution is offered: after the 60 day trial period, they will be able to trade in a qualifying old storage device to receive up to £250 cash back.

Thomas Gallivan, vice president of marketing for WD’s SMB Solutions Group, commented “These promotions provide two great opportunities for small businesses. First, they have the opportunity to put WD Sentinel through its paces and fully test the multitude of data protection and business collaboration benefits WD Sentinel provides in the knowledge that they can receive a refund if not completely satisfied. Second, the trade-in promotion can reduce the cost of their initial investment by up to £250.”

Gallivan added, “For our distribution partners and resellers, the buy-and-try promotion offers margin protection should a customer purchase a WD Sentinel DX4000 and registers the product under the buy-and-try promotion.
