I've never personally owned one, but I have heard IBMs have very crappy quality control, and they have a huge RMA rate.

I am running Dual 40GB Maxtors in RAID in a server at work, running for 140 days without a hitch.

I use Western Digitals in my home machine. They work great too.

Thank you!! I was thinking highly about IBM, then saw the new Maxtors. Currently I have Western Digitals, and well this will be the second time replacing them within a year. Thank you for saving me a headache of going through crappy hard drives.

My IBM just crapped out on me the other day. Actually it "developed" a bad cluster, but now I don't trust it. With my luck the next bad cluster will appear on the most important piece of data on my drive. :mad:

This kinda sucks too because back when I bought it I did research to find the best preformance/reliability drive on the market (that wasn't SCSI).

Well, I just got a Maxtor 80G so I'll see how that works for me.
