Seems to have power issues according to the two reviews on play

Great price

personally I wouldn't touch Maxtor with a large bargepole. Had a 500GB (not this model) at work that lasted 6 months before failing. Then at home I had a Shared storage II devices that failed within a year and the replacement within a month. They gave me a Central Axis as a replacement which lasted less than a year, then a Central Axis business unit that again lasted about 3 months and then a Seagate Black Armour which seems to work fine. After all of that Maxtor are on my black list. Maxtor just seem to be the budget tat that Seagate churn out.

Why is a 500GB @ £35 a great price when you can get a 1TB for around £50ish these days...?

Check the reviews under the product, it's not just SlyPie who's had problems with these.

I really hate maxtor. But people have different experiences. Am i right in saying that they are the same company as Seagate these days? I have better experience with seagate.

Drives die. People have different experiences, just every Maxtor died I have had has died quickly.

I have one of these and its been fine for me. Probably doesnt get a massive amount of use though, just plug it in when I want to back stuff up.

Depends what you can afford really.

Yes maxtor is seagates budget brand.


I have put deals up on here for all the main manufacturers of drives & there is always people who have had a bad experience with that particular brand/model, it seems that no matter what brand you buy some will fail. Not hating, just saying.
I always back up all my important data to cd/dvd,sometimes a few times just incase, preferably verbatims

If you want 500GB, likelihood is sooner or later you'll need 1TB, so why not just pay an extra £15!

I have this model, had it for about 2 years now I guess and it's been fine, no bad sectors and no lost data. Gets used alot too!

Luck of the draw i guess.
