I buy only Maxtor drives. I bought one bad Maxtor drive that
started spouting read errors the first time I tried to format
it. Instead of availing of the warranty or having the drive
replaced outright, I formatted around the read errors and ran the
drive for three years before I finally gave up on it. If a bad
Maxtor drive could last that long, a good Maxtor drive should
last ages. I've never had the chance to test this theory though,
since I upgrade to a higher-capacity drive in as little as two
