Seagate did buy Maxtor and i'd assume that they would continue to produce Maxtor drives, just with Seagate name.

If you require to RAID the above drives, it will work fine. You can RAID any drive to be honest (mix and match) but you not get the benefit of saying have two identical drives.

They will have the same parts etc, so you will be ok for RAIDing the above drives.
