Maxtor is Latin for 'oops there goes all your data'.

My experience has been that WD is better than Seagate by a country mile.

Seagate had a HUGE issue a few years ago with the anti-wear coating on their drive platters flaking off and gumming up the drive heads. I personally worked on (attempted) data recovery on two of those drives and it did not go well.
