Seagate settles class action suit

Written by David Stellmack

Retail drive owners will get money or software


If you
purchased a retail Seagate hard drive between March of 2001 and September of 2006, you might be eligible for a check for 5 percent of what you paid for your hard drive after rebates and discounts, or some free software as part of a class action settlement that has been agreed upon. The entire class action suit revolves around the fact that the formatted capacity of the hard drive was about 7 percent less than advertised.

If you want to claim your money or the free software, you will have to go to the Court’s Seagate settlement Web site that they have set up at www.harddrive-settlement.com and click on “submit the online claim form.” In order to complete the form you will have to have the Seagate model number of the hard drive that you purchased, the date of purchase, the name of the merchant that you purchased the drive from, and the net amount you paid for the drive. If you want to take advantage of the cash pay out, you will have to submit a copy of your receipt for the hard drive and mail in the claim form. The deadline for mail-in claim forms is March 10, 2008.

If all you want is the free software, it looks like all you have to do is complete the claim form online and then submit it. The software that you will receive a copy of is “The Seagate Software Suite” that includes the Backup Max software. From our understanding, the software will be available for both the Windows and Mac platforms. Seagate claims that the Seagate Software Suite has an approximate retail value of about US$40.
