On March 25, 2013, a federal court approved a class action lawsuit settlement between eMachines Inc. and consumers who say the company sold defective computers that ruined floppy disks. If you purchased an eMachines computer from a retail store after December 31, 1997, you may be entitled to a replacement computer, up to $365 in accessories, or $62.50 in cash.
The only way to receive these benefits is to submit a valid Claim Form no later than July 15, 2013. Distribution of the Settlement Awards is expected to start in the fall of 2013, according to the Settlement Administrator.
The eMachines settlement will resolve a class action lawsuit (Stroud v. eMachines Inc.) that alleges the defendants sold computers with a defective part that could cause the loss or corruption of data written to, or read from, a floppy disk. eMachines denies any wrongdoing but has agreed to a class action lawsuit settlement to resolve the litigation.
Class Members of the eMachines class action settlement include anyone who purchased the following computers from eMachines or an eMachines authorized reseller (a retail store) in the United States on or after December 31, 1997:
Class Members have the option to receive one of several benefits. Class Members who complete and submit a valid Claim Form and Proof of Purchase will receive a redemption certificate with a face value of $365 that can be used toward an Acer, Gateway, or eMachines replacement computer and/or accessories. This certificate may also be exchanged for $62.50 cash.
Regardless of which benefit you choose, you will not be required to return your original computer.
The only way to receive benefits from the eMachines floppy disk settlement is to submit a claim form postmarked by July 15, 2013.
