Re: Maxtor HD question
I have had three maxtor drives, and have used about 2 others. Out of the three that i have used one is still moving along, it is about 4 years old now, i have not had a problem with it...but the other two crapped out at the one year mark. The other 2 that i have used, one started getting alot of bad sectors, and the other one started making a really weird clicking noise (not the normal one that comes from the hdd when its going out) it was like tapping on metal. The drive worked fine, but it was loud, and annoying, and i have no idea what the heck it was.
I would stay clear of Maxtor with my experiences with them. Seagate (for the most part), Western Digital, and samsung are the only hdd brands that i buy now.
