been following this for the last few days. Bought a ST3750330AS 750gb 7200.11 sd15 from newegg on 12/30/08. luckily it hadn't failed when i got wind of this. I had a 750gb es.2 in another machine that I moved the image to and thought I was safe. then i see from that (since removed) list posted by seagate that the es.2 (ST3750330NS) is possibly also affected, although I know it doesn't have SD15 on it. So, those of you with more experience: what would you recommend? WD Caviar Black? I'd rather spend some money now and have a machine that I can use over waiting for seagate to issue a fix. This is for a home PC, spends most of its time editing images and running itunes...no heavy server use, etc. Thanks to everyone who is keeping up the pressure and getting the word out. If I can represent the "casual user" for a moment, you guys are heroes! If I ran PR/support like seagate apparently is, I'd be out of business quickly!
