I hope you back up regularly, cuz nobody, NOBODY - escapes the Maxtor disc death grip forever. Your time is coming...Maxtor drives rule. They're cheaper than everything else (although usually only by £5 or so) and I've never had one fail. I have one 16gb one from 1999 that's still going. My 250gb in my PC is a Maxtor, it was cheap, and it works quieter even than a new SATA Seagate I installed recently. I even have a 10 year old 6gb Maxtor in my PS2 - no problems there either!
So it was you who got the good oneBut my ancient Quantum Fireball just wont quit. Very Happy
Yep. Quantum was bought by Maxtor and now Maxtor is bought by Seagate. Soon Seagate will create a dead disks too, don't you think ?I voted for Maxtor but the worse was Quantum. I think the were bought by Maxtor. Very Happy
i had 2 hd failures:Just a survey to see which HDD is better.
I had this HDD before. i only got 3 months warranty from the shop. damn...after 4 months it made a "nice" noise everytime i boot my Pentium 2 233 MHz. Just like a married people and they put cans in the back of their car then drive it. But wait a moment...it's only making noise for around 3 or 4 days, it was working very well. You know what was happen after those days ? It become a real noisemaker on my PC. I tought the manufacturer put lots of cans inside. Then it died peacefully. All my datas are gone. It was the datas for my college.a 850MB from Conner, a company that doesnt exists anymore
