I voted WD since I still have the original Raptors running strong.

However, I don't have any particular brand loyalty in the hard drive market - I look for value.

Do they even make Maxtor hard drives anymore after Seagate bought them?

I was wondering the same thing. I used to have Maxtor drives back in the day.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:
