So Maxtor is the best HD to get? Any other suggestions? Thanks.
Man i've seen this kinda debate over and over on several forums.... and there's never one concensus. The fact is both WD and Maxtor make good drives. I've owned both of them and I like my WD 40 GB 7200 rpm Caviar Edition. It's super quiet and i've formatted that sucker like 20 times now. Still performs like a champ.
I bought a 200 GB Maxtor - 1 year and running. No problems.
Fact is that you will get one person who gets one bad experience with WD and immediately chalk it off as 'no-good'.... i've heard of bad experiences on both.
Either way, there's no fail-proof HDD.
