It could be 10 years.. not 100% sure .... 5 or 10 still makes a dent in
Cisco's approach to be honest...

Still wondering if anyone knows how the Cisco lifetime warranty really

Thanks again,

I thought this was 10 years, but if not, I do apologize.  They may have
changed it to 5 "recently?"...I've always been led to believe by my
highly cost-sensitive superiors that it's 10 years, but they often get
things wrong just to get us to purchase the most "cost-effective"
product out there.  ;-)
