Fujitsu to recall up to 300,000 hard disks
Online Bloomberg and some other Web resources, referring to Japanese Nihon Keizai Shimbun, reported that Fujitsu is to recall about 300,000 of its hard disks, made from September 2000 to September 2001, i.e. about 2-3% of all amount, produced that period. This will mainly touch models, installed into Fujitsu PCs and also to some PCs from NEC, Hitachi and IBM.
According to Takashi Takaya, Fujitsu vice-president, the reason is incorrect operation of some semiconductor components in the humid conditions.
Naturally, disks will be replaced free of charge. The expenses will make about 10 billion yens or 85 million euro.
PCs, possibly having such hard disks, include desktop Fujitsu FMV, server Fujitsu Primergy, desktop NEC ValueStar, NEC Mate, IBM NetVista, IBM Aptiva, IBM IntelliStation. Disk serial numbers are unknown, but I hope they´ll be reported in the near future.
