5 out of 5 eggsSpeed, Size, Solid

Pros: Load times on games are WAAAAAYYY improved with a pair of these drives in RAID0. I'm no longer the last one into a map at the fites.net LAN Parties, I'm usually the first! Solid reliability and loads of storage space.

Cons: Ummm.....they weren't free?

Other Thoughts: I think I'll have to get a couple more of these and move to RAID5 in the near future.

5 out of 5 eggsMaxtor makes a solid drive

Pros: I have used many drives over the years and have never had a Maxtor drive fail. This is my first SATA from Maxtor and it is working hard encoding video with no complaining.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: For the average user, I don't think there is enough difference between brands to distinguish. I am sure everyone puts out a few bad drives but, overall, Maxtor is as good as anyone else.

1 out of 5 eggsUtter dreck - Avoid

Pros: Well.. I'm trying to find some. Let's go with GB/$ and they run fairly cool

Cons: Well, I bought 4 of them for a Raid -5 array. Tried it in Win and Lin before I realized that one drive was SERIOUSLY boned (sectors). While RMA'ing that I realized that at LEAST one more drive is bad. Over a month can't refund them.

Other Thoughts: Five or so bils for four drives I can never trust. Go Maxtor, way to lose another customer.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent drive no problems at all. Works fine on my NF4 Ultra board (DFI). Very quiet.

Cons: None atm!

Other Thoughts: Does get a little warm running raid setup and had to download maxtors large drive enambler, but I do not consider that to be a Con.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast, quiet and reliable, but then, it replaced three PATA disks.

Cons: Had a few interface errors at first but that resolved itself and may be due to the cheap controller card I'm using.

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive to be main storage for a myth tv box. It performs much better than the PATA striped solution (3x160GB) it replaces.
