Seagate hit with class action lawsuit over defective hard drives

Consumers aren’t happy with the reliability of Seagate’s hard drives, filing a class-action lawsuit against the company in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California alleging that their hard drives “failed to live up to the advertised promises.”

The lawsuit specifically relates to Seagate’s 3TB hard drive models: the Barracuda 3TB Hard Disk Drive, or the Backup Plus 3TB External Hard Disk Drive. Hagens Berman, the firm representing consumers against Seagate, claims that these drives “failed at exceptionally high rates, leaving consumers with broken hardware and significant loss of data.”
