Maxtor... you ll get bad sectors within a few months :whistling:
Should point out it's only a SATA 1 drive hence price - unless you have a really old mobo would probably be better off with a SATA II drive which you can get for about £40 delivered. :)

Probably in the old days, but Seagate have owned Maxtor since the end of 2005 :p

I didnt know that! You learn something new every day! Saying that ive got a 3 year old maxtor 120 in my xbox and thats still going strong! But seagate are good ive got three x 250gigs in my pc and they seem faster than any others ive had!
This isn't such a great deal considering that 250Gb drives generally have a much better price/gigabyte.

A 250GB drive at the same price/GB as this one would cost £55. There are plenty of 250GB SATA-II drives around that will ship for less than that.

e.g. this one from Ebuyer (get free delivery by adding something cheap like a usb-key to bring your order up to £50).
or this from lowestonweb (£47.92 delivered).

EDIT: In fact, you should have posted the 250GB Maxtor drive at Microdirect. It is much better value for money.

yeah in name only, maxtor are still manufacturing their own maxtor branded crap, seagate just bought them to gain market share.

i've had 6 out of 6 80gb versions of these fail within one year - including one replacement.
In the late 90's and early 2000's I had a run of bad luck with Maxtors where I worked

but in my home machine I've had a Maxtor 80gb (it even had a mechanical click from day one) for just over three years with no other problems and it is running between 12-16 hours a day

so I would say Maxtor are far, far better than they ever were

saying that though, the link a couple posts up for the sataII 250gb Maxtor is a better deal than this one :)
