Kept running out of disk space - but that is now sorted with this bargain drive. Arrived in a few days. You just get the drive, no software, manuals or screws, but that wasn't a problem for me - installs fine with Windows XP - no special software required & manual & instructions available on the Maxtor website. Fitted OK (but a bit fiddly) in the spare slot in my HP Pavilion, following the instructions which came with my PC - the PC had 4 spare screws in the front panel that I could use to secure the drive, power & ribbon (IDE) fitted easily enough.
I purchased this drive because I could check on the Maxtor site that it had the right connections to fit on my computer. The Maxtor site also describes the procedure to go through to set up & format the drive which I followed easily enough.
Great value & no problems. Can't hear any additional drive noise & now have oodles of spare disk space to give my old PC a new lease of life.
