I agree with you on that. Ironically, the only two hard drives that have
failed on me were Maxtors: a 340MB (yes, megabyte) and a 120GB. The former
failed with the usual seek errors and whatever before a drive dies but the
latter suddenly started clicking on boot and would not spin up.
The only other drive of note is a 10GB Fujitsu. It's still working in my
mom's computer but it runs _loud_. It's almost like a jet airplane.
I generally stick to Maxtor or Western Digital (no particular reason, I
guess they are just the most common ones I run across).
