Yes, Hitachi sucks. I don't know wich HD is better, WD or Maxtor. One of my WD's died a few years ago. My Maxtor is still alive.

Well I've only ever had WD and I've never had one fail yet! Although I'm considering purchasing a 200gb maxtor so lets hope they don't fail me either!

Although I have never used a Western Digital, NONE of my Maxtors have croaked on me. One was used for more than 6 years... the other was used for 3 and this one for almost 1 year. No problems with any of them what-so-ever.

Good to know, puts my mind at a little more ease at that purchase lol, I hope I wind up having the same luck, especially with 200gb, definitely don't want to lose that, my precious pr0n will be gone!
