You will recall that I previously posted asking about problems with IBM 75GXP hard drives. The response was overwhelming. More recently, a web hosting outfit announced they were pulling all 75GXP drives from production because of "amazingly high" failure rates.
But the big news is this: I just got an e-mail (apparently from plaintiff's counsel) letting me know that a class action lawsuit has been filed against IBM. The lawsuit (surprise, surprise) asserts that there is a defect in the 75GXP line that causes abnormally high failure rates. You can take a look at the complaint in PDF form here.
