hello Craig,

why the bias against maxtor? in all the times i have
had maxtor i have not had any problems. I thought
western digital had the problems with hard ware
slapping. where the read/write head would contact the
platter and that was it for the drive, but that was
many years ago. Have they cleaned up their act or
should i say their drives. I will not touch
IBM/Hiatchi i have had tooooooooooooooooooo many
problems. right now it would be hard to convince the
wife to spend money on the computer when i dont have a
job now. :-(
