TBD: list hardware classes, list specific types of known buggy firmware/drive type combinations, possible workarounds, recommendations, warnings

Collective knowledge of buggy hardware, community based.


  • low -- not enough reports, the cause could be something else
  • moderate -- likely that's a hardware problem, better avoid if not sure

The section 5 of manual page contains general overview of the storage model and classes of hardware-induced bugs.
