4-0 out of 5 stars Lots o' space
I was looking for the biggest external HD I could find to rip my DVD collection onto... this one fit the bill. Without compressing each DVD is 4-8GB, so you can get several dozen onto a single drive.

It's nice and fast - at least, fast enough to not be a limiting step in the ripping process and fast enough to play DVDs off with no skips.

I haven't tried the OneTouch setting since I'm not using it for backing up my regular files.

The drive case itself looks pretty sharp. No problems having it sitting around my other home theater electronics. It's quiet enough when operating that I don't notice the noise at all.

One annoyance is that it ships with a FAT32-formatted drive; this has a max file size of 2GB, so you can't put full ISOs on it. This stumped me for a few hours until I discovered this limit, then I reformatted it as NTFS and all was well. ... Read more

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.

4-0 out of 5 stars Quality external mass storage on a budget
This is a regular issue external hard disk. I acquired it four months ago and have had no mechanical problems with it.

One thing that struck me as odd was the drive came pre-formated with one 37 gigabyte FAT32 partition. That may be handy for older versions of windows that don't support NTFS. There is a couple of gigabytes in unpartitioned space on the drive. I would suggest most user's repartition the drive and install a more capable filesystem.

If you are not planning to frequently disconnect the drive I would also suggest that you travel to the windows control panel and enable write caching. After doing this you need to use the safely remove hardware option to remove it properly. Doing this speeds up write performance for the drive somewhat. I have only tried this under windows xp home and it works fine.

Even though this is a USB 2.0 device if you have a older computer with USB 1.1 this drive is a great deal for you. It works perfectly with USB 1.1. It will seem slow as that particular interface isnt the fastest thing ever. But the drive is still a easy way to transfer large amounts of data between machines or to perform data backup.

My machine dual boots mandrake linux 9.2. The drive was recognized and automatically configured during the linux install routine for this version of linux.

The box it came in included a driver disk and all the needed cables and the external power supply. A tiny manual was also included.

In my opinion this is a very affordable product that performs well. The drives only serious negative is that it lacks a power switch of any kind.

3-0 out of 5 stars Decent Drive
First of all, I rank this item high, because of it's affordability. Usually it is around 100 dollars. I believe only a brand "LaCie" offer cheaper, which I do NOT recommend those items.

Anyways, to get back to this device, I need to back-up my files from the old computer, since I was getting a new computer. With USB 2.0, its speed is something to brag about.

The unit doesn't look fancy or professional at all (plastic design) but the performance is still top of the line.

Here are the minuses:
1. With the weight of this unit and the AC Adapter, forget about carrying it around. The unit is not designed for that purpose.

2. There is no on/off switch. you will have to unplug it to turn it off.

Other than those problems, what you will get is an external hard drive, nothing less nothing more.

For long~ term use, be smart and buy something more reliable. Invest more money for a fancier product.

In my case, I only use it when I need to transfer big chunk of drive to anothe. For everyday use, PLEASE buy something better.

1-0 out of 5 stars warranty says it all
The warranty is only 90 days, so Maxtor obviously does not have any faith in the long term viability of this drive. And even if it fails within that short time frame, you need to call an 800 number, get an RMA, ship the product to Maxtor, and wait for a repair or replacement for an unspecified amount of time. No drop off service. Next time I purchase a drive I will be looking much closer at the warranty.

2-0 out of 5 stars Fine for a little time
This drive seemed ideal for my use, i.e. additional storage and backup. My system is windows 98ME with USB 1.1. Drive worked OK for about 6 months, started to make "clanky" sounds, died and took my computer with it. I expected better from Maxtor. I'm not sure what caused this since the drive was never physically moved and it had ample ventilation. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible product
I wanted a dongle 1394 card because I have a wireless card, but this product was terrible. The dongle did not release properly from the card, and as a result the dongle and card became damaged. Also could not get my W2K computer to properly recognize my iPod through this device. Had no problem on my desktop. Don't buy this unless you are a glutton for punishment.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works fine for me
I have had this for about 3 months now with no problem (knock on wood). I use the sony iLink connection (Sony's Firewire) and can record television to it and play back from it at the same time with no problem (3.35 GB per hour quality level).

I have not noticed any extra noise from it and find the one touch backup functionality convienient for internal drive backup.

2-0 out of 5 stars Buy a Fire Wire instead
I wonder how many people who write these reviews still feel the same after a few months. Initially was THRILLED with a fast- portable hard drive to use as an archive for home and office....until it started filling up...so to speak.
with only about 9gb on the disk, it makes starting up Windows about a 10-12 minute wait while it "scans" all the data on the Maxtor. Once opened, the transfer/access rate is like working on an old 386 machine... and it's 10 times worse with a USB 1.1 connection!

I thought for CERTAIN that the problem was me. I defragged, rebooted, deleted half the files..... no luck.

Stay with a fire wire, especially if you are replaying any music or video. Can't imagine someone using this thing to do a presentation.

Mine is now a pretty paper weight.

1-0 out of 5 stars Buy the new 160GB 5000DV!
This one is an obsolete from Maxtor.
It has only 2MB buffer memory.
Don't buy it!
Buy the new 160GB 5000DV with 8MB buffer memory!

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent device but with restrictions...
The Maxtor 5000DV 120MB external hard drive was very easy to install on my laptop using a USB 2.0 ADAPTEC CardBus adapter AUA-1420 (PCMCIA). Once the drivers were installed on my laptop, after making sure I had the last version from the Maxtor Web site, it was a matter of physically connecting the cable and going.
The disk drive comes pre-formatted from the factory with a single volume in a huge extended partition using FAT32. Since I am using Windows XP, I reformatted the disk with 2 primary partitions and a multi-volume extended partition using NTFS. This reformat process was easily accomplished with Windows XP Computer Management/Disk Management standard features. For more details see Control Panel®
Administrative Tools®Computer Management®Disk Management® Help®use the word "partition" as a search word.
I was planning on using the Maxtor disk drive to store large volume of application data as well as to store a drive image of the internal primary hard drive(C:) from which the operating system XP is running. Using the Maxtor disk drive to store and retrieve data is a smooth and very quiet working environment, which seems to me as fast as the internal disk drive, although I did not benchmark it.
The restrictions became apparent while attempting to create a drive image of internal primary hard drive C:. The restrictions are Windows related, but nevertheless curtail the use of the Maxtor disk drive. Here is what I later found from the Maxtor Knowledge Base under External Drives:

a) Maxtor does not supply or support applications used to create a backup or mirror image of your internal hard drive to an external personal storage device. Microsoft offer limited support for copying the operating system from one hard disk to another within the same computer. Maxtor's 1394 and USB 2 personal storage devices are intended to copy files and applications.

b) It is not possible to boot to any Windows operating systems from any USB or 1394 external drive unit. The only bootable devices that can be configured from the BIOS are SCSI, IDE, Floppy or CD-ROM.

c) Currently there are no DOS drivers for USB or 1394 devices. USB or 1394 devices will not function under DOS because this technology can only operate in a "Plug-and-Play" operating systems environment. Backup software that creates images, such as Norton Ghost or PowerQuest Drive Image, requires that a device is able to function under MS-DOS. USB and 1394 drives will not function under MS-DOS because there are no MS-DOS drivers.

So, if you are planning to create operating system drive images, you will need to run your image software from a second copy of your operating system installed in a different partition on your internal primary disk. This way you will be able to run your drive image software in normal Windows mode from the second partition and your primary partition will be considered data with all files closed. The workaround used by the above mentioned image software to make sure all files are closed before creating the drive image is to re-boot your system and execute in boot-mode(MS-DOS). The image software gives you the option to run in normal Windows mode if the image source is from a different partition from which it is running.

You will be facing the same problem if you attempt to install a second copy of your operating system on the Maxtor disk drive. In my case, Windows XP Setup Program could not complete the installation task since it also runs in MS-DOS.

Dantz Retrospect Express software is included with the Maxtor disk drive. I had to spend more than an hour reading and browsing through the 275-page+ manual before I had the feeling of making an intelligent use of the product. Retrospect appears to be a comprehensive backup environment with an easy user interface. My usage of the product is too limited to offer a serious evaluation. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Nice card that can finally access larger drives
got this card for almost 2 years and almost got the new promise TX2 133 but found many people had problems. I never had any problems with these. Easy to install, plug in and it ask you for the drivers in 95, 98 and Win2k and restart and that is it. People that had problems was they did not put the jumpers at the back of the drive and set it to Active on Fdisk. Transfer rates is very high and no corruption to data. TX2 had corruption of data according to several sites. Got the new western digital 160GB andupdated the BIOS and I was able to access it. Cool is I had this card nearly 2 years ... and with the new BIOS I can use this for another 3 years more.... it is definitely a deal. Good job Maxtor!! Going to find a few more for my other Lan computers. problem is everything is so high here.... US is so lucky.

1-0 out of 5 stars Do not buy!!
This card did not function well for me. I do video editing and tried to copy a 11GB file. It crashed Win2k. I've tested multiple times, and still didn't work.

I ended up getting a Promise board (133tx), and worked like a charm. Makes me wonder about Maxtor, especially since it looks like they OEM from Promise. (Promise chips are on the Maxtor board).

4-0 out of 5 stars Good board, incompatible BIOS
I spent three days trying to implement in my three year old 300 Mhz PC. Award 4.5 BIOS seemed to be a bottle neck. I could not access more than 30MB of my new 60Mb hard drive. Since I could access this through the mother board IDE, I am selling the board.

It was a nice idea, just a limited system.

3-0 out of 5 stars great for storage, not for editing video
To DV editors: While this is a great drive for STORING video. I would NOT recommend it for EDITING video. While editing on my 400Mhz iMac DV SE using either iMovie, or FinalCut Pro, things often get a little choppy. If in iMovie I use both audio tracks, I will even occasionally get an error message about the drive being too slow. It is possible to edit video on the 5400 rpm Maxtor -- and you'll be able to store more than 4 hours of uncompressed DV on it -- but do not expect its performance to equal that of your internal drive.

1-0 out of 5 stars Unreliable and error-prone
I had hoped this drive would provide cheap backup for a variety of files without the time and annoyance of cutting CDs or using other removable media.

It has instead proven to be unreliable and unstable. I've lost data, had it freeze up my system, had it cause conflicts with other firewire devices, and had it corrupt files and/or misplace parts of the file structure. The drive has so many problems that I connect it only when absolutely necessary.

The transfer speed is terrible, so much so that using a "find" utility to locate a file on the drive is unbearably long, always resulting in an error.

It may seem like a lot of storage for little money, but what is the value if it consistently loses data and crashes your system? Pay a little more and get something more reliable, it will be worth it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good external storage
Does not work properly on win 2K/Pro/Advanced/server ... watch out, will go on and off line for no reason, give buffer overruns, and sometimes refuse to come up at all. Maxtor sez windows problem. Microsoft sez maxtor problem. Switched to XP, and it works GREAT. You decide who lies.
I have 5 of them now.

1-0 out of 5 stars Defective Design and Components
I bought one of these about a year ago and it only worked for about 3 weeks before it started going bad. The hard drive would spin down every few minutes unpredictably. When this happened when I was writing to it I got a lot of data loss of course. As I discovered later the power to the drive was not consistent. I pulled the drive out of the ... enclosure they had it in and put in my PC directly (it came formatted FAT-32) and it worked fine. There were two boards in the enclosure, an firewire to ide bridge board and one for distributing power from the external power supply. It turns out the board for the power supply is defective. I suspect there's a bad capacitor on that board, that's why it fails periodically. Geez these guys couldn't have spent a couple more cents and shipped the thing with more reliable components? ... I ripped out the bridge board and hard drive and have them inside an old scsi enclosure and it seems to work fine.
What a hassle they inflicted upon me just because they couldn't spend a couple more penniew on a higher grade of capacitor or a better board design.

1-0 out of 5 stars Can't Count on It
I gave up trying to rely on this drive. I've had the drive a little over a year so it's out of warranty. I didn't use it often, maybe just about 30 hours of usage. The drive started making a clicking noise and sometimes doesn't spin up and I can't access my data. For two weeks it didn't start then finally on one day, it spun up!

I left the drive running for a few days with no problems and removed all the data. I scanned the disk for errors and reformatted without any problems. Good... so I shut it off and moved it to another computer and the $*)@&% thing won't spin up again. I give up.

Maxtor support was really good but basically told me I was out of luck because of the warranty. They don't repair them but will send you out a new drive.

Some advice... Keep the drive running all the time, if it's a hardware problem, it will fail within it's warranty. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Watch Out!!!
....I strongly recommend using and sticking with Western Digital hard drives. I've installed 10 of those with none of the problems that I encountered with this product.
You have to figure out what the pictures in the documentation mean to set the jumpers as to master or slave settings. Those are well marked on Western Digital's hard drives. I never could get the software that came with the Maxtor or the computer to acknowledge the presence of the hard drive. Even changed the cables. I do not recommend this product at all and in the future plan on purchasing Western Digital no matter what the price. It might be a faster hard drive but that can't be proven by me!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Bad experiences with Maxtor drives
I just had a Maxtor 80GB drive fail that was 2 months old. 2 years ago I had a Maxtor 20GB drive fail after 9 months. I have never had a failure from a Western Digital drive. I have bought my last Maxtor ... if a new computer comes with one ... I will not buy it. Based on my experience so far, the failure rate of these drives in the first year is 67% (the replacement for the 20GB did not fail in the first year). Two out of three in this case is bad ... very bad.

1-0 out of 5 stars Western Digital should be the ONLY driver you ever buy
I had a Maxtor drive or two mounted as an upgrade to a machine I constantly upgraded in the mid-90s. I don't remember any real problems with that (those) drive(s), and they were worked pretty hard. So, when I started to build a digital audio workstation for music production, I figured this Maxtor drive would work fine. Well, I guess it did, for a while. Now, last week after over a year of not being used hardly at all (seriously, I've used that computer maybe 30 times for various things, and that's it), but being powered up during most of that time, I just had my first hard drive failure. Fortunately, I haven't finished connecting all my recording, midi, and instrument equipment, so I haven't lost any original music.

After building 2 computers, owning 2 laptops, having 2 other machines custom built, and upgrading the heck out of the first custom machine (at least 6 hard drive or RAM/CPU/MoBo upgrades), this Maxtor drive was the first failure. And it was the machine used the least. And it failed just in time to be deemed out of warranty. I'm out about a hundred bucks, plus whatever time it takes me to re-mount another hard drive and reinstall all the software I had (which includes service pack upgrades). I estimate a full Sunday afternoon of work.

So, unless you intend to build a machine that sits around, does no work, and has a hard drive konk out in a matter of 14 months, get a Western Digital.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great drive for you PC
I have purchased and installed 2 WesternDigital and 3 Maxtor hard drives in the past 5 years. From my personal experience, both are good brand. The prices are very compatible for both drives and are all carried 3 years warranty. However I'd rather choose Maxtor in the future. The Maxtor drives have very good utility and are very user friendly, they are easy to install and come with software to help get them partitioned and formatted even you are a first time user. Ultra ATA/133 interface with 8MB Cache makes the drive 20% faster than the regular one (2MB Cache size). Have used Maxtor in many years and never had a failure. Great Drive!

1-0 out of 5 stars Worthless Piece of Crap - Beware!!!!
I installed this hard drive as a slave to an existing HD. Within one week this 80GB drive had failed, taking with it all of my data. The Maxtor installation 'wizards' and Power Max utilities are nearly worthless when a mechanical problem has occurred. Plus, getting Maxtor to believe your story and replace the item is another terrific challenge. The best thing that could come of this tragic case is that hopefully people will be steered to better products as a result of my bad experience with Maxtor and this crappy product. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Could go a little bigger.
I owned two of these in my computer back in 1997. At the time that was a reasonable amount of disk space for a small machine. Now, however, I suggest you look into a slightly larger capacity drive, for example 160GB or more. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars I have encountered problems with the 5000DV
I bought 3 5000DV drives for backup and additional storage. The first disk ran quite well for a few months. Then, the led turned red forever and no data was accessible anymore. The second HD suddenly showed a clicking noise. My PC slowed down dramatically. Obviously the drive had internal problems but was still working. After a while the same symptoms like for the first drive showed up (red led burning). Today, I heard a periodic ringing signal. It was the drive not working anymore. So, the second drive has gone.

1-0 out of 5 stars A real lemon.
Like many others here, my drive performed quickly & quietly, but only for 4 months. Then it tanked, taking 80G or so with it. It was neither dropped, abused, refurbished or bought from a "disreputable" retailer.

Moreover, I've done a bit of research & found my experience repeated ad nauseum by dozens of others who have bought this drive. In fact, seems I was lucky to get 4 months out of it; many haven't even made it that long. What's more, Maxtor didn't even ask me for any details before authorizing the return, which leads me to believe they're well aware of what a dog this drive is.

My guess is they've made it so quiet by shortchanging the cooling of the drive. Before it failed, the case would get so hot you couldn't touch it. Sad really, as until this, Maxtor drives had always performed well in my experience. The replacement drive is still OK, but I've since bought a DVD burner for backing it up, as I've no faith this one will last either. Back to Seagate, I guess.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't
I have fried two of these, and lost gigs of data. It can't handle massive backups. You'd think I'd learn after one!

1-0 out of 5 stars Never buy this Maxtor drive if you value your data!
I bought this drive in November 2003, and just 2 months later the drive was not accessible. I lost a lot of valuable and irreplaceable data. I have heard similar stories about Maxtor drives from others.

1-0 out of 5 stars Lost five years of data...
Last week, during the unimaginable worse time (a system re-install), my 5000DV decided to fail. When I finally got back into WinXP, I noticed the drive was inaccessible and would only make clicking noises. Do-it-yourself data recovery tools have not been successful (I've tried many).

Needless to say, I was HORRIFIED AND SICK when I realized how much personal data I had lost.

So now I will be sending the drive to a professional data recovery service, which charge $1500 and up. Maxtor's web site does list data recovery companies that won't void the drive's warranty. However, had I not ignored the negative reviews regarding reliability before buying, I wouldn't be needing such services now.

I've only had my drive for four months. ... Read more
