In my experience there seems to be a question mark over Maxtor reliability, but that's only in my experience.

I have two Maxtor Diamondmax drives. They have run almost 24/7 for the last 14 months, no problems.(touch wood !)

Simon7063,Dan the Confused, and RICH, thank you for your replies, forgot price of Seagate Barracuda 200GB, its £116.99

The Maxtor does look a good buy. The info is for a friend so I will pass it on. Thanks again for you help,

Regards,

Sapins.

Maxtor for about ten years and have never had a problem.
I guess all drives and makes have their bad eggs
