    Consumers get 5% of their purchase price or some free software, the lawyers got millions.

    Not with digging up all my old serials... I had a bunch that were RMA'd though, 4 I think, that might make it worth it but idk the serial numbers.

    And apparently, thepurchase must have been before Jan 1st, 2006.....

    Cash Payment Benefit equal to 5% of the Net Amount Paid.

    To receive the Cash Payment Benefit, your purchase must have occurred before January 1, 2006 AND you must provide ONE of the following:

    [ ] Proof of Purchase (store receipt, credit card statement or bank statement) that shows ALL the “Purchase Information” above.

    [You must enclose the Proof of Purchase with this form]

    [ ] Serial Number for the drive (if you do not have Proof of Purchase)

    I'm not going to take advantage of Seagate's misfortune at the hands of
    some clueless idiots lawsuit.

    It just pisses me off, is what it does.

    If you buy a computer, you get what they fucking give you.

    And you have no business building one if you don't know how drive size is measured.

    And I like how they went after the company that's giving the best quality drive.

    :mad:
