I have 4 Maxtor HDs at the current time, No Problems!
Over the years EVERY HD brand has had problems at one time or the other. Such is life.
Now keep in mind that ALL HDs will crash, someday!
Over the last six months the vast majority of the posts about HD have been about older ones and how to get the data off of them.
Lets see what others have to say. John
I recently purchased a Maxtor Ultra ATA/133 hard drive. I have not installed it yet, because I've been told all kinds of horror stories about Maxtor.Mostly that they are unreliable and that they crash often. I would like to hear some opinions from anyone who is running one on their system. Any info. would be helpful.
