Primary master: Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 120GB SATA 7200rpm
Primary slave: Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 160GB SATA 7200rpm
IDE: Quantum AT Fireball 40GB

I run my OS and document/ Spreadsheet/Graphics partitions on 120 SATA and my Music and Video partitions on the 160 SATA.
The 40GB IDE is partitioned for Temp and Swapfiles

They are all formatted to NTSC except the Swapfile which runs faster on a FAT32 partition.

I have a mini DV camera and make lots of DVD movies to send to my family and friends back in New Zealand so I need a lot of storage.

When I first started using computers I had drive failures with Seagate and Maxtor drives. I have used Quantum for well over ten years with no failures or problems. I was very dissapointed when I upgraded all my hard drives last year to find that they are no longer in business.

Anyone know what happened to them???

I am very happy with the new Maxtor SATA drives and can recomend them.
They are good value for money especially up to 160GB
which was much less than half the price of a 300GB

From About.com

Quote:
Maxtor has made a very well tuned drive for their entry into the Serial ATA market. Currently the DiamondMax Plus 9 SATA hard drive is the top performing desktop hard drive available. With a large 160 GB capacity, users should have room to spare for all their files. One really nice feature on the drive is the inclusion of a standard 4-pin Molex connector alleviating the need for a SATA power adapter cable. With all these features and performance, expect the drive to cost more than your equivalent IDE based hard drive.


I think this is probably the best value for money drive available.

Maxtor got bought out by Seagate.

Anyways, I have three hard drives in my computer.
An 80 gig Western Digital
A 60 gig Maxtor
A 120 gig Seagate

Some Seagate Barracuda 160 GB, 7k2 rpm. To be honest I used all my life WD and I think that WDs are much better than Seagate.

I use 5 old drives for a total of approximately 40GB.
* WD Caviar (2.4GB)
* Maxtor 531DX (9.5GB) Ultra ATA/100
* IBM Deskstar 22GXP (12.6GB) Ultra ATA/66 7200RPM
* Seagate Barracuda (14.2GB) Ultra ATA/66 7200RPM
* Quantum Fireball (3.0GB) Ultra ATA/33
Together with 3 CD-drives they're on the motherboard's two IDE channels and a HPT366 controller. When booting I can choose to only use the Caviar, or all HDD's (the other four are in a seperate case with a seperate PSU)
