April 2020 unlabeled SMR controversy - what's next?

Thanks Tom for the informative videos on the topic!

What do folks think will come of all this? Unfortunately, I predict class action settlement(s) in which we’ll see almost nothing from. And meanwhile many of us have RAID arrays that are prone to fail any rebuild scenarios.

Forget the lawsuits – If I could just get replacement non SMR drives I’d be happy. I’ll probably see about 35 cents coming my way in 10 years after all this.
