Maxtor or seagate

  edenworkshops 18:14 04 Aug 2008


I am faced with purchasing a new hard drive, it will be either a maxtor or a seagate. Maxtor I know, as I have had two of them.

But what about seagate, is this of similar quality to the maxtor.

Your thoughts would be welcom

Thank you

Even though they are both the same company now, and have been for a while, I am still buying Seagate drives.
All 3 of my Seagate drives are registered with Seagate, via their website, and all have a 5 year guarantee.
