The class-action suit is for the 3TB drives.

Seagate Technology might be in trouble with the law after failing on numerous occasions to deliver the reliability its marketing rhetoric tends to suggest. Today, consumers filed a national class-action lawsuit against the company, claiming Seagate was not only issuing faulty drives, but that the warranty appointed replacement hard drives were equally defective.

This news comes from consumer-rights law firm representing the consumers, Hagens Berman, whose portfolio includes challenges to Apple, Google, and DRAM manufacturers, among other companies in tech. The lawsuit itself is to be filed on February 2, 2016 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.

Specifically, the drives in question are Seagate’s Barracuda 3TB hard drive, and its Backup Plus 3TB external hard drive. If you purchased either of these products, Hagen Berman says you could be entitled to recompense, covering the cost of replacement and repair
