Maxtor sucks. EVERY hard drive I have bought from them doesn't work anymore and the last one caught fire, almost burning my room down. I didn't even bother sending it in for a new one to avoid future problems.
I did some research and apparently EVERY single person (that I spoke to) who has had problems with there HDD had a Maxtor. There was not one person who complained about the Western Digital. Some even had them for up to 10 yrs with out problems.
Does anyone know why the hell Maxtor is so unreliable?
And they have balls to claim that they are the leaders in hdd technology... They should be selling there HDDs as explosives.
