Which hdd? Samsung or Maxtor?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I was recommended to buy this hdd:
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...sung_sata.html (3rd one down)

For a few extra quid i could get this maxtor:
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/Maxtor_sata.html (4th one down)

The specs seem very similar so which one would you guys say i should get for reliability and performance?

Thx
Fury

Have never used a samsung HDD, however Maxtor drives have been known to be unreliable, but that was years ago. I've been using Western Digital drives without any major problems. I would have to recommend WD, check them out.
