WD owns Maxtor now If Im remembering right. They bought them out a couple of years ago. So the Maxtor of today is much better. The old original Maxtor is freaking junk. Im not saying all of them, but I would say over the years of working in shops and personally, Maxtor is on the bottom of my list. Old Maxtor and Fujitsu = FAIL in my book. The Maxtor that died on me was manufactured in 2001.
