5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect Secondary/Backup Hard Drive for Laptops!
I have been using Maxtor external hard drives for just over a year now and have made recommendations to family and colleagues which have resulted in them buying many of them as well. So with experience with close to a dozen hard drives, we have not had any problems and have nothing but praise for the drives.

First off, with internal hard drive prices for laptops so expensive and so difficult to install, external hard drives that use firewire (IEEE1394) are a great option. These hard drives use both firewire and USB, so you can take the information and hot swap it among multiple computer (like a thumb drive) or keep it plugged in to a single computer for use a secondary hard drive. I have found virtually no speed difference between accessing files on the external hard drive versus the internal.

The automatic backup feature, makes the hard drive all that much more useful. It comes bundled with Dantz Retrospect Express program which is an easy-to-use option for automatically backing up just what you want with a touch of a button. I backup often, usually just punching the button as I go meet to clients. It usually finishes the automated process by the time I return. Because backing up is so easy to do, when I did lose the hard drive on one of my laptops, I barely missed a beat after I got it replaced, simply restoring the drive image to make my new laptop look just like my old one.

I highly recommend Maxtor external hard drives. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

If you're looking for a large, high-performance hard drive, look no further. The Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 40 delivers both capacity and performance in droves. The unit is built with Maxtor's proprietary DualWave controller, which combines a Texas Instruments DSP (Digital Signal Processor) to control drive functions and a specially designed 50-MIPs RISC processor for host commands. This allows the DiamondMax 40 to offer the fastest spindle speeds available and pack enough data per square inch to make it both the fastest and largest drive in its class.

There are two technologies that make the DiamondMax Plus the screamer that it is: spindle speed and areal density. (For more information on these technologies, see our FAQ.) The DiamondMax Plus 40 boasts a spindle speed of 7,200 RPM, which is currently the fastest spindle speed for ATA-based hard drives (drives that utilize an IDE interface). The DiamondMax Plus 40 also has an areal density of 7.245 gigabits per square inch. With the ability to pack 7.245 Gb of data into a single square inch of hard drive media, the DiamondMax 40 can store 10.2 GB per platter; and since it has four platters, the DiamondMax 40 can hold over 40 GB of data. Why is this important? Because the spindle speed is a constant, the only way to get more data passing under the drive's read heads is to pack the data closer together; that way, the read heads can read more data on each rotation.

In our benchmark tests, we found the DiamondMax 40 delivered an average sequential-read speed of around 24.4 MB per second and a write speed of 17.3 MB per second. While the read speed is close to that of Seagate's Barracuda ATA II (another drive in its class), the write speed is faster by 1 MB per second. The DiamondMax Plus 40 also has an excellent read burst speed, which is a measurement for the amount of data the drive can pump from the 2 MB of onboard memory buffer (cache) across the UltraDMA 66 bus. Since this bus has a bandwidth limitation of 66 MB per second, the read burst speed won't be higher. We measured it at 58.8 MB per second, a full 10 MB per second faster than Seagate's Barracuda ATA II. CPU use was negligible at a relatively standard 3.3 percent. Only the random access time left us desiring more, as its 14.3-millisecond score was 1 millisecond slower than the Barracuda ATA II and upwards of 3 milliseconds slower than Quantum's last generation Fireball Plus hard drive. Fortunately, it didn't affect the DiamondMax Plus's other scores, such as the real-world copy test, which times the copying of a directory containing 644 MB of data (a typical CD's worth of data) to another directory on the same drive. The DiamondMax Plus 40 came in at 1 minute and 34 seconds, which was 30 seconds faster than Seagate and minutes faster than others, including last-generation drives from Quantum, IBM, and Fujitsu.

We found the performance of the Maxtor DiamondMax 40 to be first rate and the heat and noise to be minimal. This is an excellent combination for a 40 GB behemoth that delivers state-of-the-art hard-drive technology, unparalleled performance, and ultimate bragging rights. --Sean Cleveland

  • High areal density--largest drive in its class
  • High data throughput
  • Built on the latest drive technologies
  • Runs quiet and cool

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Hard Drives On The Market Today
The Maxtor DiamondMaxx 40 Gigabyte hard-drive is, quite simply, one of the best hard-drives I have ever seen in my life. While I've seen faster and better drives, none are as affordable dollar-for-gigabyte, and all have some inherent flaw(s) which make them unsuitable for data backup and recovery. The DiamondMaxx is a very stable hard-drive, able to survive all kinds of temperature extremes (though it is not recommended that you test this theory). I have purchased them for many different clients, and all agree that this drive is the workhorse of their companies. I, myself, am using one of these drives in the computer I am writing this review from.
Bottom line: if you want dependablility and overall good performance in your hard-drive(s), than look no further than the DiamondMaxx 40 GB hard drive.

5-0 out of 5 stars When it comes to hard drives, you can't go wrong with Maxtor
Now I sound like a commercial. But it is true. I have five computers in my home office, with a variety of hard drives. Over the past few years I have had 2 drives fail on me. Both contained crucial data that was lost and Both were made by Western Digital. It makes me wonder how Western Digital can sell their products at such ludicrous prices. I replaced one drive with a Maxtor, and the other with a Quantum Fireball, which is now Maxtor Fireball (Quantum sold out of the hard drive market).Total, I have 2 Maxtor drives (a small 6 gig in my internet server)that have been put through the paces (formatting, installing OS) and both run constantly. I have yet to experience any problems with them and will be purchasing a 100 gig drive for my file server. In summation:No, I will not purchase another Western Digital. Yes, I look forward to yet another reliable "workhorse" from Maxtor. They make products that increase my uptime and decrease data loss.

2-0 out of 5 stars A mediocre hard drive
I have had this drive for about 10 days now and the performance seems quite reliable. However, two things bother me about this drive:

1. The noise. I have a brand new Dell Dimension 8200 that is a very quiet machine. I am adding this drive as a second volume and there is an annoying reverberating noise from the disk even when its not accessing. Its not an outright loud noise but persistent enough that after 15 minutes it "feels" very loud. I'm thinking of giving them a second chance and return this for a replacement.

2. The quality of the enclosed IDE cable is deplorable. The instructions in the package suggested using that cable to "maximize performance." Looking at the substandard cable, I thought of leaving the original Dell cable in there. When the sound kept disturbing me, I decided to give the Maxtor cable a try, for what it was worth. As expected, that didn't have any effect on the noise level.

I did find a quirk with Windows 2000 in the process that might be helpful to other users. Apparently, when you switch IDE cables Win2K loses track of the bootable device! Switching back to the original cable does not help either. I tried all forms of recovery and repair but to no avail. I had to do a full install to get it up and and running again. This is not a problem with XP Home or Professional though.

1-0 out of 5 stars This drive might have a motor reliability problem
I own two such drives. Both failed in less then two years, one completely, the second one still works if mounted "upside down" (otherwise the motor cannot start). I think there are some motor reliability problem with this particular drive and it is more common that one can assume from the posts or WEB research. May be similar to IBM's problems, but I may just have a bad luck. I also own 4 I Western Digital drives with 8MB cache and they all are still alive. Again this might be a coincidence , but please be careful before buying this drive, especially as a replacement.

1-0 out of 5 stars Complete waste of time and money
Based on the "good reputation" of Maxtor hard drives, I bought one of these when my IBM "Deathstar" failed. That turned out to be a really bad choice... I thought the IBM's 2 year service life was bad, this "wonderful" Maxtor lasted about 6 weeks before having motor problems and it failed completely 2 weeks after that. Since I don't have an extra room in my apartment to store boxes for all of my electronic items, I threw away the original packaging (Maxtor requires this for returning the defective unit), so, I guess I now have a 90 dollar, two-month-old, paper weight. I replaced it with a Seagate Barracuda and, the jury is still out, but at least I won't have to worry about warranty coverage. The warranty on the Seagate drive stipulates that subjecting the drive to more than 350 G's will void the warranty, so, as long as I don't take it apart or throw it in front of a speeding bus, I should be covered. DON'T BUY A MAXTOR!!! Unless you enjoy throwing your money away. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Returned to Maxtor after 40 days of use
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.

5-0 out of 5 stars Massive Storage, fast access, seems to hold up
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!

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy Installation
I cannot imagine why these reviewers are having difficulty with installation. I do not use the Maxtor software, but instead let Windows XP install the drive. I've installed five Maxtor Drives in the last two years with no problems. One of them did fail after about six months, but Maxtor replaced it in less than a week.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good drive, not as fast as Western Digital
I own a small computer repair shop. We've done a number of harddrive upgrades for our customers. We've used both the Maxtor and western digital. 9times out of 10, the western digital increase performance, the Maxtor doesn't really give you any good performance gains, its a good drive, but if your looking to speed up your system, espeically at boot up, the western digital is going to work better for you.

2-0 out of 5 stars Never again will I buy Maxtor
I had been using Maxtor drives the past 5 or 6 years. Well let me rephrase - was using old Quantum Fireballs before Maxtor bought that company. So decided Maxtor would be my next purchase. I bought a 40 GB drive a while a go - it failed after about a year of use. So then I bought a 120 GB Maxtor drive. That thing died on me after 6 months, destroying a boat load of data that took me months to get bac (some I would never get back).

The drive gets too hot, and is fairly noisy. One the other hand, I have recently been using a Hitachi/IBM drive and it has been rock solid.

I will never buy another Maxtor drive. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Lost Drive one month after warranty
I used this drive regularly but not overused. Right after the warranty expired, it starts to buzz loudly and blink a red light. My Dell computer doesn't see it anymore so I basically lost all the video that was on the drive.

There is no troublshooting info with the guide or relevant information at the Maxtor site. Not even any info about what the red light means (a presume it means the worse).

I know this product has been discontinued but there should be better support. I have more than one of these so now I'm worried about the others going down as well (they have a few more months on their warranties)

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect Secondary/Backup Hard Drive for Laptops!

1-0 out of 5 stars failed after warranty over
This EXTERNAL drive failed just after 1 year warranty expired,
and I haven't used it very often - just occasional backups.

Now, it just makes a lot of clicking noises when turned on.
My computer no longer recognizes it - the drive is toast.

(I have an INTERNAL Maxtor drive that seems to be fine, however,
it is only about one year old - crossing my fingers.)

I used to think Maxtor was tops in reliability.
I'll buy Seagate or IBM from now on. I've had no trouble
with them.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fast with minor problems
My dell computer was just driving me insane with that slow and noisy hard drive. So I searched around and found out about Maxtor. The review and comparison matrix was looking pretty good so I settled for something big enough and not too expensive. I have been using this for a year now, and overall the experience has been a pleasure. This hard drive just sits there quietly and I have reduced my program compile time by 50%. Faster than the internal drive! I think that was pretty awesome.

The reason that I didn't rated this item as 5 stars, though, was that it gets bad sectors from time to time and I had to run scan disk quite often (about once a month or so). However, it has never caused me data loss, which is very interesting. Only the output directory gets corrupted so my guess is that it cannot handle too frequent file reading/writing/deletion.

Also I suspect that the stop device doesn't really work that well, because it still keeps running after stopping the device in windowsXP. So I am pretty careful nowadays. I always shut down the computer, wait for the hard drive to quite down (you can still tell the difference, even though it is alreay less noisy than the computer fan), and unplug the power line. No on/off switch seems to be a inconvenience, but not that much.

Reading the other review, I just hope that mine can last long enough. Otherwise I'll come back and change my review. :)

1-0 out of 5 stars Avioid At All Cost ! ! !
If there ever was a 1.0 product the Maxtor 3000DV qualifies! I have had 3 (yes 3) different 3000DV drives fail in less than 2 years. My last drive drops frames significantly. I have isolated the problem down to the 3000DV drive by swaping out every component that I use for capturing video. I have tried putting my current Maxtor drive in another external firewire kit and I can replicate the problem. I have also found out that I am not having an isolated problem. I have contacted Maxtor Customer Service to get a replacment drive to no avail eventhough it is pretty obvious that they have a defective product. This is defenitley a buyer-beware product. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Avoid like the plague
I was feeling short on cash so I went against my better judgement and bought maxtor. I work at a computer store and I new maxtor sucked already, but I was being cheep. It lasted me one month, then died straight up. RMA'ed it to maxtor, or course they mixed it up and it took 1 month to get my "refurb". 4 months later its dead again. I'm now about to RMA it again, save yourself the hassel and spend the extra money on an IBM or anything else.

4-0 out of 5 stars Tricky Install But Solid Home Performer
I favored this drive over the 40GB 7200RPM Maxtor because I consider space more important than speed for my particular uses. Maxtor themselves will tell you that the faster drive makes a big difference in performance, and can cut some HDD-intensive job times almost in half. So consider your need carefully when buying this one.

The drive comes with everything you need for Windows 9x. The MaxBlast utility should allow even older computers to see the drive with a special Maxtor driver placed in the boot sector of the drive. It also comes with a dual IDE cable and installation hardware.

Under Windows 2000, however, the install was tricky. The MaxBlast utility that comes with the drive didn't work properly, and only wanted to create twenty-eight FAT16 partitions. Web research and a call to Maxtor's helpful technical support number revealed that MaxBlast is incompatible with Windows 2000. On Maxtor's advice, I performed a low-level format of the drive and flashed my bios and the machine saw the drive properly. It should be noted that the drive is recognized as approx. 58 GB in Windows, due to differences in the way different industries calculate a gigabyte.

The drive has run flawlessly so far. It is the third Maxtor drive I've owned, and like the others it shows no problems at all. The drive is excellent for general home use. I occasionally notice the slower speed on very large file transfers, but it's usually not an issue at all.

4-0 out of 5 stars Solid Large HD for Digi-Cam Users
My first Maxtor installed in a 2000 year modest-spec Compaq PC- some minor problems resolved finally by cheating & getting supplier to install (but have installed a couple of Western Digital & Seagate HD's over years more easily in Gateways/IBMs/ Dells). Overall: great price, reliable in use ( 4 months), fine-speed (domestic-level only), & capacity truly useful for digital camcorder work & archiving. Perhaps, even get a spare for an inexpensive RAID backup system. ... Read more
