Maxtor? the best? Are you kidding? those are certainly the worse HDD on the planet.

Seagate or WD.



I will support the Seagate comment, but I've never had anything but trouble with WD drives which why I refer to them as the Winn Dixie drives.


(To explain that... here in Florida the main Grocery Stores around are Publix, Albertsons and Winn Dixie... Winn Dixie being the lower end of that list)


Oddly enough the drives that I've never had a single issue with have been Toshiba and Fujistu (mostly Fujitsu.. I can't seem to kill those at all).

WD is great, I got 2, even the very old one is still working perfectly after years. Never had any problems with Seagate too (beside an old HD).

Maxtor drives are just noisy hot pile of junk. Too many just died after one or two years of use. Unreliable...
