Customer Reviews

This drive failed without warning after 4 days.
Chad Yoshikawa
Eventually, a human responded and said "The warranty says we are not responsible for any incidental or direct data loss".
M.B.
I am suprised more people don't complain of quality problems with Maxtors.

There is nothing spectacular about this drive, but nothing particularly bad either. The software they provide does not work correctly with Windows XP, but aside from that it's a good drive to get if you need to upgrade your existing system.
Speed - It's not going to set any records, but it's not slow either. It seems to fall in the middle of the pack for performance benchmarks according to the various websites that have evaluated this product.
Noise - Again, it's not the quietest drive on the market. In fact I've seen other models of Maxtor drives that were practically noise-free. This one you can hear slight chattering as it accesses the data, but I can barely hear it above the noise of the various cooling fans in my PC. In short, you would need to have supersonic hearing to be upset by the noise this one makes, but there are quieter drives out there.
Heat - Once again, it's in the middle of the road. Most of the drives out today are generating a lot more heat than the older drives. The reputable hardware testing sites I've checked put this in the middle of the pack. If you have a standard computer case and multiple hard drives, most likely there is very little space between them. I would recommend getting a quality ball bearing cooling fan for this and any drive if you want to extend its life, but if you're installing it in a cramped space with little airflow, then a cooling fan is a necessity due to the heat it generates.
Quite frankly, most of today's drives are quick enough and quiet enough that, with the exception of a few performance models, it's hard to tell any difference between them unless you're a serious computer gearhead. The only areas left to compete are in reliability, customer service, and software.

For those who need MASSIVE storage, it's time to step up to 120 gigabytes!
Depending on what kind of user you are, this drive is amazing.
If you're planning on maybe getting on the internet and using your computer to write documents, or do your taxes, you probably DO NOT need this much drive... but for hard-core users, this drive will suit you right down to the ground.
I actually moved to this drive from an 80 gig drive that I kept tapping out. I use Windows XP on a split partition with Red Hat Linux 8.0... each O/S (Operating System) takes up some space by themselves, and after I get going with loading up my CDs, Movies, Games, etc... I'm out of space.
I don't even bother with my entertainment center anymore, as I have all my media on my computer. As I tend to move around a lot, I find that not having to wait to unpack all my stuff to find the exact CD I want to listen to has made life pretty sweet!
This drive performs well enough, seems to be holding up okay, and the access time is fairly decent.
If you're looking for something a little smaller, Seagate's 80 Gig Barracuda has been an outstanding drive for me (I have 2, and I've used them both hard for the last 8 months or so). If you really don't have any huge storage needs, I also have had a lot of good experience with the 30 Gigabyte Maxtor drives. I have one right now that has been a rock for the last 2 years. I'm using it now as a back-up for important files!

copy my 40 gig to the 120 no problems.the enclosed booklet and software made it very easy to do it.the whole operation took 75minutes the only thing i had to do was turn nortons back on and put my aol password back in , it ask for it so i put it back in.very minor things to redo.its like a new pc again boots up faster hard drive is not as noisy.my first time to try this.maxtor makes it a worry free process.

It's a decent hard drive for a great bargain usually. One of the complaints I have is the noise, since it can get loud and rather annoying if you do not want to be disturbed.
One of the fixes for the noise is apparently the AMSET utility (search for it on the Maxtor website) which lets you toggle the noise level (at the price of search speed).

If you can find one of these for [a good price] per GB, snap it up. I'm running a Dell with Windows XP and adding this drive was a snap with Maxtor's setup disc. Comes with everything you need. Runs fast enough for video editing, and very quiet, too. I've added Maxtor drives to 4 different PCs and never had a moment's problem.

The drive was well packaged and with a reasonable price, given the capacity I got. I used partitionmagic when I upgraded my windows 2000 to this new drive. It runs smoothly and without much noice.
The problem I encountered was that after 40 days of use, it suddenly failed to be recognized by the operating system, as if the hard drive had been disconnected from the computer. If I switch the computer off and turn it back on again, it may work again but it may fail after a few munites of running. I finally returned it to Maxtor because it was still within the warranty period. I just hope this is not a design flaw.

I use win XP.

No problem in installation.

No problem recognizing the volume.

I really have no complaint about it, works just like it should. Use it mainly for backup and movie storage, so don't really care about how fast it is, but of course I try to go with 8mb and ATA133. $2/1GB would be a good price for this. Refered to amazon by WhoSave coom.

Recommendation: get a external HD enclosure for your old hard drive, don't toss it out, just use it as a USB drive.
