Well considering that the performance of the two is so similar, and that the Western Digital comes with a <b>THREE</b> year warantee... it would be a bit silly to get the maxtor dont u think?
regarding the WD 10K rpm drive... it sounds extreemly good i know, but its aimed at enterprise systems, only comes in one capacity (1 platter, 36Gb) and probably wont be available to the masses for quite some time
i hope they release a 72Gb edition sometime soon, but im not holding my breath

My experience with Maxtor and WD has been with Maxtor being more reliable, BUT with most of my failed WD drives being around 2.5 to 3 years old! What does that mean? It means the failure that is more likely to occur is also more likely to be coverend under warranty. With my luck, my Maxtor drive would fail the same day as the warranty ended and my ISP would be down that day.
