By Mike Holter
UPDATE 11/12/13: eMachines Extends Cash Option Deadline for Class Action Settlement
UPDATE: A federal court approved the eMachines Computer Class Action Lawsuit Settlement at the Final Approval Hearing. Class Members have until July 15, 2013 to file a claim. Distribution of the Settlement Awards will be made in the fall of 2013. See how to file a claim for the eMachines Computer Settlement.
A proposed class action lawsuit settlement has been reached over allegations eMachines sold defective computers. If you purchased an eMachines computer, you may be entitled to a replacement computer, accessories or $62.50 in cash if the class action settlement is approved.
The eMachines settlement will resolve a class action lawsuit, titled 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 computer 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 a replacement computer and/or accessories or a cash payment. 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 or 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 class action settlement is to submit a claim form postmarked by July 15, 2013.
A Final Fairness Hearing is scheduled for March 25, 2013.
