A simple storage solution with automated backup software for protecting all your photos, music, videos, and documents in one safe, convenient place. Maxtors simple user interface makes it easy for backup scheduling, data restoration and even power management. Its easy to install, just plug the external drive into an available USB port on your PC or Mac and run the preloaded software.

Seems a great price; I havn't seen it cheaper.

cheap but read bad reviews about this.
#2
I've got one. Only bought after reading positive reviews.
#3
I bought one in the summer. The external enclosure(sp) died, and would not come back. Opened it up and grabbed the HDD out of it, so luckily all was not lost!
#4
Had one of these for about 8 months now, no problems so far! Doesn't run particularly hot, decent transfer speeds. Heat+rep added!
#5
7.7p per gig, not bad but there have been better deals.

Also I have a probably unfair bias against maxtor
#6
Nothing can beat the sainsburys deal!!

Can we have the links to the better deals. What is the most red hot deal for 1Tb HD , would appreciate a link for this too.

It's a Seagate drive inside.

I took the drive out and have it in my pc, it's identical to another Seagate drive I have and it's been excellent.

Thanks for the info :), I've always thought that Seagate had something to do with Maxtor.

Seagate drives are supposed to be really great.

I had a Maxtor NAS drive last year,

After 6 months, it failed. There were reports all over the internet of loads of similar occurances in similar time frames. I couldn't send it back as I needed the data off it and Maxtor wouldn't save it, they'd just skip it and send a replacement.

But you know what? that wasn't the worst bit.

The worst bit, was that they used a sodding completely proprietry filesystem (well, a proprietry variation on an open source file system) and it took me 7 sodding hours to recover all the data from it.

I would never use another attached drive from Maxtor.

Just out of interest what file system was it?
#12
yeh I'd like to know about the filesystem too..
banned#13
It used a proprietry variation of the REISERFS filesystem. Which is an obscure Unix based FS, itself loosely based around EXT3 I believe. Before asking, no, linux distros do not come with FS drivers for it so I couldn't just plug it into a Linux system. Tried that...

Which, as you might expect, made it an absolute pain in the **** to recover. Manually editing sectors in hex editors on hard drives is *not* my idea of fun. Neither is paying the quoted several hundred pounds that data recovery companies were quoting to recover it.

Try googling 'Maxtor Shared Storage Drive' for lols
