Yes. I replied because your title is misleading. you should have specified whih drives are affected. Since most of us don't buy OEM drives in bulk, we're not that concerned.
I don't need to specify which drives are affected, that was the purpose of the article link, so you can read it. I suggest you try reading the article because obviously you missed the information it contains.
I buy all my drives from Newegg, which is a Seagate distributor, they are OEM drives, and Newegg purchases them in bulk, so they ARE affected.
I have been building computers since 1997 and I have NEVER purchased a retail boxed drive.
