no contest, seagate barracuda V. sata drives are faster than ata drives. cant remember full specs, best to do a search on the web.

Both makes are reliable - the sata is a serial interface drive, not IDE - can your computer support it?

Is there any on line support or a site to visit regarding Maxtor HDD's?
