MaXtor is the incredible manufacturer who provides the world with
reliable OEM and retail drives, at a fraction of the cost of any other competitor. Each drive sold features a prominent disclaimer against any liability for failure or data loss. Their latest industry revolutionizing feature is a series of tones that are played when the drive has failed. This technology is essential when you absolutely need to be certain that your data is hopelessly gone, which as the label kindly reminds you is not MaXtor’s concern.
After a phone call with LaCie I learned that many others have also experienced the elusive death cry. Luckily the case is still under warranty. Unfortunately the replacement won’t likely come with a MaXtor brand drive that I’ve come to love and regularly dispose of.
