    Only a few days into owning the drive and so far, I'm delighted. I also have the Iomega 250Gb USB2/Firewire drive and this Maxtor beats it hands down.
    Transfer times seem a lot faster ( it's a 7200rpm model, instead of the Iomega 5400rpm drive ), it's nearly silent in operation ( the fan on the Iomega is quite noisy ), you can manually switch it off ( the Iomega needs unplugging from the system, before it'll let you power down ) and the software package is excellent.
    I like the fact that you can daisy-chain two or more drive together using Firewire, so you only need one free port on your PC/Laptop ( USB2 connections can't be daisy-chained, so you'll need more ports or a hub, if you have more than one drive ) and all the required cables are included.
    One thing to bear in mind if you are using this on a laptop though. Most laptops come with a 4-pin Firewire socket, but the cable supplied is a 6-pin. You'll need to buy a 4-pin to 6-pin cable, if this is the case ( Amazon sell an excellent Belkin cable, that is ideal for this ).

    I bought this drive as a secure backup medium for my data. I'm a professional photographer and needed somewhere to store my digital images (over 100GB). The drive looks attractive and the build quality is good and my initial impressions were very favourable.
    I started moving all my digital images onto the drive and everything was great and worked well until a week later. I was working in Windows xp and went to access the drive, but the drive letter disappeared from "my computer"
    I tried everything possible to try to get the drive recognised by Windows, which included unplugging the drive from the usb 2 port on my PC, uninstalling the usb port in device manager and letting Windows detect them again. Eventually I got Windows to detect the drive when I plugged in the usb. When I delved into the "manage" section of "my computer", to my horror, the drive was showing the full formatted capacity of the drive and it was unmounted as well. Where had my 100GB + of data gone to? Well your guess is as good as mine!
    I contacted Maxtor technical support and they were as much use a chocolate teapot! They gave me no advice as what had happened to my data and gave me a few links on the net to check on data recovery, they even advised me to check in the phone book! What a cheek!
    They advised me to partition and format the drive again, which would mean any chance of data recovery would now be impossible.
    Luckily I had another copy of all my data backed up on DVD's.
    I've now sent the drive back to Amazon for a full refund. My advice is not to have anything to with this Maxtor drive. Do a check on Google to see the problems others are having or read the reviews below. I have now bought a LaCie which I hope will perform better.

    I started using this drive with my iBook G4 and has been great.
    My advice is NOT to use the enclosed software but get Carbon Copy Cloner. This is free software than makes incremental backups on to the firewire drive that are bootable.
    About a week after I got the drive I was burgled and had my iBook stolen. I simply plugged this drive into my girlfriends iBook and told it to boot off the firewire drive.
    I was instantly back up and running with all mail, passwords etc exactly as it was. When my new iBook arrives I will just run Carbon Copy Cloner to sync it back on to the new laptop. I will then be up and running EXACTLY as before. In total I will have about 5 minutes down time, AND not have the hassle of re-installing any apps at all.

    I know there has been a lot of problems for other people with their maxtor hardrives but personally I have had no problems with it. I used it straight from the box, not using the backup software as I am simply using it tostore more video files, and it worked perfectally. I am able to store a huge ammount of data on it and it very robust. I have knocked it off my desk twice but it still works fine, no data lost. It also looks good, with its silver finish and the backup button with a blue light makes it look good enough to not beout of place on any desk. It is very quiet, makes much less noise then my laptop and it works very fast. I can play video files or games straight off it and it does it at a good speed.
    Of course I know many people have had problems with them and I know I would be writing a terrible review if that happened to me but if it does work properly, as it has done for me, then it does exactly what it says on the box and it does it well.

    Hello,
    I bought this hard drive about a month ago and was very peased with it. The quality of the case is good and the hard drive runs ultra quiet. But after three weeks and of rarelay using it (I backed data up once in a while) the HD broke. Why, I don't know. I didn't move it, handled it very very carefully, etc. I assume cheap quality. - Not the first time I had problems with Maxtor drives. Lost a lot of valuable data. Too sad...

    I own three of these (yes - I got lots of data to back up) and havn't had any problems. They are fast, robust and suit my needs perfectly.
    My only gripe is that the stand can be easily moved on a wooden surface, Once one of the drives got knocked and slid off , falling to the floor...Oh dear, I thought (well..maybe something a tad stronger), that's the end of that drive but carefully picked it up and searched the hard drive - no bad sectors - no data lost.
    I'm VERY pleased with the drives and thought I'd add a note here just to balance up some of the negative reviews. I'm not saying they are wrong to report faults..just that I own three of these and all work perfectly!!
