Hello all... hope every one had a nice x-mas :)
Can any one tell me of a good HDD that does not fail as quickly as the Maxtor's ... this is my 2nd HDD from them (120GB DM9 SATA), and again it just stops the entire system to a holt. Only had it for 6 month ... I ran there util on it to find out if the hdd is completely screwed but it says no, yet it holt on a full zero fill or NTFS formating and any time I try to use a particular section on the drive... now short of tussing this paper weight in the freezer and see if I can access any data, I'd rather just get a more reliable HDD.
I use my system heavily for gaming file transfering over the LAN and d/ling files o-line... so I could do with a HDD that's a bit more reliable than those of Maxtor's Diamond Max line.
Kind Regards All and thx for all responses.
