  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

2 out of 5 eggs Maxtor 1 Touch MINUS 11/26/2008

This review is from: Maxtor OneTouch 4 1TB USB 2.0 3.5" External Hard Drive STM310005OTA3E1-RK

Pros: simple backup

Cons: 7th maxtor drive I've owned. Maxtor Marketing decided to disable drivepass (used to password protect the drive) and only include drivepass with the 1Touch "plus". I do not need firewire, but I do need (and expected) drivepass. After backing up all my data, I now need to (software) shred the contents and return the drive (Maxtor's the loser in that transaction...) then purchase the 'plus' version of the drive. IMHO, Maxtor should rename the drives "Maxtor one Touch Minus" and simply "Maxtor One Touch"...there is no "plus" to speak of, just a hobbled version of what used to be included.

Other Thoughts: I contacted Maxtor Tech Support. Opened a ticket with them, and was emailed a response stating: "You should expect a response from us within 24 hours" has been 125+ hours and counting...way to go, Maxtor/seagate, or whoever you are....will update with response.
