Summary: i bought this about two and half years ago and since than i've had to replace the fire wire cord and the power plug also i don't like how is goes into sleep mode after two minutes of no activity (towards the drive only)
Summary: Good product but it could use better set up instructions. I downloaded the instruction manual and still had some difficulties. It came in a timely manner. Too bad Seagate bought them and is not producing any more.
Summary: Not too good. I bought this past May 2009. HDD physically has not presented problems yet (I wish never man!), but software is not ready yet to be in market: 1.- When you make a backup plan, you can not backup single files under a Folder.
Summary: I was shopping for a large USB drive to serve as a backup device for my videos, music, system files, etc, and ran across this. I liked the looks of this maxtor drive as the external casing was fairly sturdy.
Summary: The good: The read and write speed is good enough for backups and media storage, and it offers USB and FireWire connections. Ample space. Quiet enough and small enough -- though not small enough to carry in a laptop bag. The software has a nice interface.
Summary: I purchased this drive in preparation for backing up key files and photos. The plan was to back up these files prior to re-formatting my PC's drive and re-installing Windows XP. The installation instructions seemed straight forward, and the built in software on the Maxtor One Touch 4 drive is pretty...
Summary: Hola, Me compre un HDD maxtor hace un año y luego de utilizarlo todos los dias. Un dia Me deja de funcionar. Reviso el transformador y funciona correctamente. Cuando lo conecto enciende fugazmente la luz frontal y luego se apaga.
Pros: Precio muy bueno
Cons: Si deja de funcionar, no me restituyen la informacion que es lo mas importante .
Buen disco duro pero tiene un pequeño/gran problema
19 April 2009
Summary: Tengo un disco duro One Touch 4 de Maxtor desde hace un año y medio y nunca me ha dado ningún problema hasta hace poco, que por culpa del diseño en vertical y la base tan estrecha, se tumbó y dejo de funcionar totalmente.
