High performance drive for a bargain price

AdvantagesFast and reliable

DisadvantagesAutomatic spin-down can be annoying

"...market. Firstly, being made by Maxtor you would be expecting something special. And I can happily say that it does outclass many of the other drives out there. It is a 7200rpm drive, and so file transfers are as quick as on an internal hard disk. While I'm on the topic of performance, there is one little issue. The drive will power itself down after a period of inactivity, which is great if you like to save energy, and probably good for the lifespan ..." Read review

MAXTOR BASIC 3200 500GB

AdvantagesWhen working - Fast, convenient, massive capacity.

DisadvantagesNot reliable

"Started off very well. Plug and play as promised, via USB.

Quick review of Maxtor Basics Personal Storage 3200 500 GB

"Take a look at the Seagate forums for the dozens of people with problems with these drives. They tend to need to be powered up separately to the computer on every reboot or the drive is not recognised and wishes to be reformatted. Garbage .. avoid it and all the Maxtor Basics line up. Seagate will ignore complaints about it.

I can easily store lots of videos of my little one and memories with my families and my favourate songs and movies at one place. Its really too easy to store and get the data from it. No need to install or format ..." Read review
