Cons: NONE. Never had an issue with Maxtor hard drives.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat bang for the buck

Pros: It's a Maxtor (for most of us this is a name synonymous with reliability. I believe Seagate hasn't actually changed Maxtor's production processes.)
Insanely quiet (I had it in an open enclosure next to me and still couldn't hardly hear it.) Product page says around 3.2 dB under normal access, which is quieter than practically any harddrive and can't be heard over any fan you are likely to have.
ATA133 is still pretty good (in fact, few drives can utilize SATA1.5 noticably better than ATA133 and none can truly utilize SATA3.0.)
For its pricerange and speed, it has good seek times and latencies.

Cons: Gets a tad warmer than one would expect from a low end drive, though doesn't go anywhere near its maximum operating temperature (60C.) I mention this as a con because if you get it for a passive external enclosure like I did you need to ensure it will be cooled well enough to not tear up or get a drive made to take more (a notebook drive would be ideal.)

Other Thoughts: I have had a lot of Maxtor drives over the years. In my experience the Maxtor drives have been very reliable with only one dying at all after a number of years and one after four years or so getting a few bad sectors. On the other hand, I have had a Seagate drive which routinely "forgot" the partition table and Wxxxern Dxxxtal drives that died after a short time.

5 out of 5 eggsNot Bad

Pros: Awesome drive! ATA133 is a little outdated but so is SATA 150...I use to have this same drive, but the one with the 2MB cache. The 8MB cache makes a big difference! This is by far the fastest PATA drive I have ever owned... faster than my seagate barracuda ATA133.

Cons: The only drawback is that it's only 80GB. otherwise there is nothing wrong with this drive at all.

Other Thoughts: NEWEGG ROCKS!...oh yeah, hope it lasts longer than my old Diamondmax. That one died after about 2 months of use. Lost 67GB of mp3s, applications, games, ect. :(

5 out of 5 eggsEasy replacement drive

Pros: The Maxtor DiamondMax 10 80GB IDE Ultra ATA133 drive was a plug and chug replacement in my old basement computer. I'm using an Asus A7NX8-Deluxe motherboard with a AMD 2600 processor with 1Gb of Corsair matched memory sticks. No problems - fast easy format to XP with Maxblast. Running Windows Vista Beta 2 and Office 2007 Beta 2. No problems at all in loading the OS or software and no BSOD so far.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Cheap drive for experimentation of new Windows Vista Beta 2 and Office 2007 Beta 2.
