Fast HD, Great price, good for 2+ yr old pcs

by oskar f on 8/18/2005

I have a Compaq Presario 7126, about 2-3 years old and needed a replacement for my dying stock 80 giger, so bought this Maxtor offering. Buy.com delivered the same day, i payed a 2 day delivery and got it right on time. It came securely packed in 2 boxes, and its vacuum sealed static bag. This HD performs much better than the stock before, with its 8mb of cache and 7,200 rpm you can feel Windows and some apps loading much faster. I will write back when this drive fails. (hopefully this pc will someones else's).

Drive Failed

by Thomas Holley on 2/1/2006

I tried three of these drives and all failed. I first ordered two, one would not format and the other failed after one day and would no longet open. I returned the drives and ordered a replacement drive along with a larger 160GB Maxtor drive. The 80GB drive failed after a couple of days and will no longer open. The 160GB drive runs fine. I have used Maxtor in the past on several different computers without incident and was very shocked ar the failure of three drived in succession.
