Default Seagate Class Action Lawsuit

If you purchased a Seagate Hard Drive between 2001~2007 you may be eligible for a 5% cash back, or free Seagate software.

Check out the claims at this website!

I thought Seagate owned Maxtor? And 5% isn't that much especially if you bought a 160GB like me 0_o. Plus I can only get the software, which seems like a joke lol.

Backup and recovery software... there are some free ones that are bettter

Also, the issue here is that people are ignorant. They don't know computers and how they work so they go on sueing.

They same thing happened to Western Digital. I don't understand how they could get sued for doing nothing wrong.

Its like when McDonald's was sued for hot coffee spilling and burning. They had to put HOT! all over the cup - if you're that stupid, I don't think you are going to even attempt to read the cup in the first place.
