Get The MAX From MAXTOR

AdvantagesIt's Huge and Fast

DisadvantagesAren't Any Really

120GB HARD DRIVE

Advantageshas plenty of room to store files e.g musicand documents

Disadvantagesbecause its cheap its not the best to buy. but very good for the price

Because i have lots of documents and games i found this hard drvive to be very useful for me and the rest of the family because of how much space we needed for us to save school work office ..."

maxtor

Advantagesfast, high capacity

Disadvantagestoo much space, good for future preparation

"...windows for use. I chose a Maxtor drive because - i looked around on the internet at reviews etc. on the different companies and models and found that many people had been unhappy with the customer service of other brands. I have been having trouble with another of my computers and the Asus customer service has been terrible so wanting to avoid this again i chose a complemented make - Maxtor. This drive has way too much space (120Gb), unless ..." Read review
