The original story from The Inquirer early this year stated it was mainly Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 1TB drives effected by the firmware bug, but a quick online search reveals this was not the case, reportedly the problem also exists in some 500GB models with many finding the once reliable brand to be failing at an alarming rate.
