Can't believe this bullshit, some fags are sueing Seagate because they can't read product specs. It's common knowledge that 1kb != 1000b, I guess some people have nothing better to do.

I, in fact, qualify for this 'refund'... bought two Seagate drives, a 120gb and a 300gb, couple years back....but I'm not gonna get the rebate. Why should one of the best hdd manufacturers have to pay for some people's ignorance? Simply don't understand.

ITT discussion of this stupidity, or more lawsuits like it.

yeah, the first person who said a comment seems like he's just like the people who filed the lawsuit. why can't people read, even I know that it's 1000000 and not 1024000... it says right on the package. :( I do'nt understand everything bbnet said, but he sounds like he knows what he's talking about. if only more people were like him, we wouldn't have things like this. :(

What I don't get is why that fag that posted first is happy that Seagate is getting sued. It says right on the box that you may (read: will) get less capacity than advertised. It's a known fact, and that is exactly the reason why I am appalled by this lawsuit...retards who don't know how to read are getting a monetary bonus thanks to four retards who don't know how to read!

Well, although I do not think seagate should have been sued, but all Hard Drive Companies should change the way they market it. Because for people who are ignorant, it is hard to understand what a byte or what a bit is. Also, they do not understand the way computers work, by 8's. So to make consumers more happy, put on box, 100GB and actually supply 128gb. or whatever. you know what I mean right?

hmm that would be a nice surprise. :D buy a 100gb hard drive and actually get more. although it might be weird, since it will be less reliable than the system we have now?
