buying a 250 gig but witch to get - Page 3

post #21 of 22
Taishan: Yes that's what I'm talking about. First hand knowledge. That's good. Just remember to tell what model, and how old etc. Once Hitachi couldent make anything but sowingmachines work, you know

My point is, that unless Maxtor want to go bust, they propably learned from that experiance.

IBM/Hitachi had the exact same problem some years ago. and if you look it up, I'm pretty sure they all did at some point. They propably all will have bad designs again in the future as well. Thats the price for evolution.

It's not that I have any preferrence to Maxtor at all. I can just see that they at this moment in time has some of the best prices on rather fast discs. That's why I think They are worth looking into. I currently have 5 of them, due to the reasons I just mentioned. They run very cold, quiet, and so far with no truble at all. I just hope they continue to, and use them in a mannor they were ment to.

Perfectly understandable. The drives in question I think are notorious for failing anyway. They were almost exactly 2 years old, ATA/100, 40GB, 7200RPM, with a 2MB cache (I used to know the model number by heart, so I could cringe every time I saw it ). One of them only made a clicking noise when powered - didn't even spin up. Took it out to the range and , well, you know the rest of the story...
