Had bad experiences with Maxtors, wouldn't touch them

I've been using a Maxtor external hard drive for 2 years now and it's still going strong. You won't find a single company that get 100% positive feedback. It all depends on your personal experiences.

Just because you've had a bad experience with the company doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad deal.

maxtor are fine with me. play.com is the only problem. they end up sending me wrong product most of the time :x

Hmm odd, I've probably spent £1000's with play.com and they've never got it wrong once - voted hot.

Good find Damo

Pls try to include price in the title.

If you're concerned about drive reliability, I would strongly recommend a program called GRC SpinRite. Secondly, it is always sensible to make backups of all important data. Personally, I use ]mozy.com (that's a refer-a-friend link, I get 250MB extra storage for every person who uses it) who offer 2GB of free file storage space, or $3.95 + $0.50/GB per month for business use.
Once you've read through the marketing spiel on SpinRite's website (very American type advertising, is a good product though) you'll see hard drive manufacturers know that every drive they produce has "bad sectors" from the day you buy it, and that more develop as time goes on (these are the "bad sectors" ScanDisk shows you), so it doesn't really matter which manufacturer you pick, and you should treat hard drive's as a volatile data storage medium.
