Creative Might Face Huge Class-Action Payments Due To Hard-Drive Capacity Manipulations


If you purchased a Creative Labs MP3 player between May 5th 2001 and April 30th 2008 you might be privileged to a class-action settlement, concerning false quoted hard-drive capacity, allegedly made by Creative during this period of time. According to sources, the company has apparently deceived the customers by adding 7% more storage capacity to its media players, as real data proved different. Although Creative has never submitted an admission, it seems the company is urging for an agreement that will grant anyone who apply for the payout, to get either a 50% discount on a 1GB player or 20% off on any Creative product from their online store. Mind you, claim forms need to be submitted by August 7th, at the latest, so if you bought a player between those dates, it’s your chance to get a fair discount.

Update: Creative has lost. The company will be forced to offer the plaintiff 50% discount on a 1GB ZEN Stone mp3 player or 20% off on any Creative product from their online store.
