Subject: Seagate 3TB hard drive class action lawsuits
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.
