I have used Conner, Maxtor, Western Digital and IBM.
My worst experiences are with IBM Death Stars...
errrrrrrrr, Desk Stars.
My old Conner's were bullet proof. I still have one, a 40 megabyte and it works. Now that is old.
Maxtors and Western Digitals all the way. Got three (3) machines with two (2) Maxtors in one, a Maxtor in another with the refurbished IBM and a Maxtor and a WD in the third. They just hum... Now IBMs on the other hand have been a piss pain. I buy a 40 Gig and it dies in less than a year. RMA and got another one. Mean time I go and buy newer one, same size, and it dies a year and a month later. I have a programmer friend, he set up a four IBM HDD Raid Server and in a years time two of his drives died. IBM sucks donkey crack. RMA is very good though. Fill out form online and mail HDD in. Get back another one. Only peeve is replacement is a referbished part. Oh and all these IBMs are Desk Stars. Hence, Death Stars.
Strange thing the referbished HDD is runnin like a timex now, just goin and goin. Strange.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
