My System Specs

Default

The whole point of this is that any respectable company should be immediately jumping in with at least an acknowledgment of the issue when there is any question of systemic problems. This is only made worse by the fact that folks depend on HDDs for storage.... can you imagine if somebody had a pile of these in "secure" raid and had them all fail in a close timeline? This isn't a typical component that can be easily replaced if it fails, it's more like a tire with a higher-than-normal rate of blowing out at high speeds with potentially catastrophic results.

In a case like this... manufacturers should at the very least be removing the suspect parts from the supply chain until they can figure out what's going on. This smells a hell of a lot like the IBM deathstar fiasco.
