Apparently, their failure rate is something like 32%?!  Not sure if it's that bad but it must be
high.  Reason I mention it is I have a failed 3TB drive.  Luckily, anything I had on it was
backed-up elsewhere and I didn't use it much but it kicked the bucket after less than 1.5 years. 
What it appears happened was that instead of using five platters in the drive, they used 3 at 1TB
each.  Something went wrong.

Lawsuits are in the U.S. and Canada.
