I recently bought a Toshiba USB 3.0 Flash Drive.
The first page of the included warranty statement is below. Of note (in the second column of the first page) is the clearly laid out Consumer Guarantee for Australia, including reference to the Australian Consumer Law.

- Point 6. - Normal wear and tear
- Point 8 - Modifications… not approved in writing… (This product has a hole for a lanyard but none is included. Could attaching one without written permission void the warranty?)
- Point 9. - Defacing the Toshiba logo.
