    Hard Drives

    What is it with harddrives today!! I just don't think they're making them as well as a year or two ago. We used to use drives until they became obsolete; now we're lucky to get 6 months out of them. I've had two Maxtors fail in the last 6 weeks. I purchased a Western Digital this afternoon only to find it would not format! WinXP Pro basically informed me that the drive had fatal erros! I've heard the same kinds of stories from various associates as well.

    Has anyone else experienced this kind of stuff? If so, can anyone recommend brands of drives that are still reliable? This is getting maddening!

    Thanks a lot for any thoughts.

    Bob my preference is <A target="_blank" HREF=http://seagate.com/>Seagate</A>. I have not had any problem with them and haven't heard of any complaints.
