Embarrassing or what… not the first bugged Intel chipset, the sandybridge was also bugged
Many chipsets from multiple vendors have been bugged. VIA chipsets had issues with the AGP bus messing with the disk subsystem(among other things), ATI/AMD had subpar USB 2.0 performance some time ago, nVidia had a few issues in earlier nForce versions that I can’t recall at the moment. Luckily, the severity of most of these bugs was not a show-stopper unless you couldn’t make concessions. It’s the same thing here.
Some review sites tried to replicate that bug, yet were unable to spot it.
A friend of mine received his Haswell mobo ( Asus Sabertooth z87) a 4770K , had it all put together in 2 hours. I just saw it and used my Trident ( Lexar USB 3.0) drive in it. It worked fine for what its worth.

The chipset issue is not that the drives won’t work, but rather that they disappear for a short time after the machine wakes up from a certain power saving mode.
